BACKGROUND The International Collaborative Epidemiological Study of Host and Environmental Factors for Stomach and Colorectal Cancers in Southeast Asian Countries (SEACs) has been conducted in Viet Nam from 2003 to 2008 on a case-control basis. For further effective primary prevention, we examined gastric and colorectal cancer mortality nationwide in eight(More)
BACKGROUND Several studies have established a relationship between temperature and mortality. In particular, older populations have been shown to be vulnerable to temperature effects. However, little information exists on the temperature-mortality relationship in Vietnam. OBJECTIVES This article aims to examine the monthly temperature-mortality(More)
An excess of stomach cancer among workers has been observed and it could be argued that men whose occupation involves heavy work eat more and are consequently exposed to a greater quantity of carcinogens in their food. Working under conditions of heat stress greatly increases a worker's salt excretion by as much as 0.1-15.0 g through sweating during one(More)

As cancer mortality data is not available, a study regarding the real problem of cancer mortality is timely and urgent in Viet Nam. Therefore the aim of the present study was to calculate cancer mortality in the city of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh. The correlation between cancer mortality to incidence ratios and relative survival probabilities for 23 cancer sites(More)
