Re: Stomach Cancer Risks
It doesnt matter what has or hasnt happened, if youve been looked at already you are doing the right thing. Prevention is the best killer of Cancer of all types. In other words, even if you DID get Stomach cancer now, by starting a regular regimen of tests on a schedule that you and your doctor feel comfortable with, you can catch it early enough if it DOES occur to have a real impact on curing it. The problem with most cancers is they are found TOO late. In other words, you would be ahead of the rest ofus who wait until there are symptoms to go get checked out.
I used to be a serious burger eater, but then I found meats like burger meat and others contain Nitrates which are a carcinogen. I still eat like a pig which is bad, however I cut hamburgers and beef out of my diet almost completely. I try to eat fish or chicken whenever possible, though they have their drawbacks too.
