In brief: Smoked foods?
The risk of gastric cancer has been associated with consumption of smoked and salted foods and lack of refrigeration.
The widespread use of refrigeration has been cited as a reason for the decrease in the incidence of gastric cancer in the US since 1930. Several studies have demonstrated an association between Helicobacter pylori and gastric cancer. Common in Japan, Iceland, Chile & Costa Rica.
