In brief: Vaginal cancer
This is absolutely false.
This type of rumor arises out of hate and racist thoughts. There is no basis for these rumors.

In brief: Chinese Food & Diet
There is no credible evidence linking chinese food to vaginal cancer.
All diets, including our "american" diet, contain substances that have been purported to increase the risk of certain cancers - like red meats and animal fats in causing colon cancer. In fact, the literature is pretty sparse on what causes vaginal cancer - the hpv virus & a drug (not used in us) are the only well-known causes.
