Smoking and stomach cancer

(p.419) Chapter 23 Smoking and stomach cancer

David Zaridze

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews studies on the link between smoking and stomach cancer. Smoking has been found to be associated with an increase in the risk of stomach cancer in many cohort and case-control studies reported from Asia, America, and Europe. The majority of cohort studies found a statistically significant association between smoking and the risk of stomach cancer, relative risks ranging from 1.4 to 3.0 in current-smokers.
