BACKGROUND High salt and nitrate intake are considered as risk factors for stomach cancer, but little is known about possible interactions. This ecological study examines the respective importance of both factors for stomach cancer mortality at the population level using data obtained under standardized conditions and with biochemical analyses performed in the same laboratories. METHODS Randomly selected 24-hour urine samples from 39 populations, sampled from 24 countries (N = 5756 people for… CONTINUE READING
