The purpose of the study was to identify the association of various factors with stomach cancer. The study participants were aged between 30-75 and included 170 stomach cancer cases and 2,184 controls.
The study found:
(a) Beef consumption was associated with a small reduction in stomach cancer risk.
(b) Those who consumed liver at least once per week had a 30% reduced risk of stomach cancer compared to those who never had liver or only once every two weeks.
The data from the study shows that liver consumption is associated with a reduction in stomach cancer.
