In brief: No one
Gastric cancer appears to be enviormentally linked.
Hispanics and asians appear to have the highest risk, but upon imigrating to the us there risk assumes that of everyone else.

In brief: Lower SE status.
Apparently, there is higher risk in lower soceoeconomic (se) status groups, and in those who eat smoked foods, and heavily salted foods.
Many people have ulcers, and helicobacter pylori infection. Treatment of this infection can produce remission in 1/2 of patients who get malt (mucosa associated lymphoid tissue), and has dramatically reduced the incidence of this disease.
