  3. 3. Introduction• Salt intake was first reported as a possible risk factor for stomach cancer in 1959 Bull Inst Public Health 1959; 8: 187-198• In some early studies, using refrigerators for food storage, which may be an indicator of less salted food consumption or decreased salt intake, was found to be correlated with a reduction in stomach cancer rates Br J Cancer 1990; 62: 136-137• A nearly linear correlation between the cumulative mortality rate of stomach cancer and the median 24 h urine salt excretion level J Epidemiol 1992; 2: 75-81
  4. 4. Animal Studies• In general, salt alone has no apparent effect on the development of gastric carcinogenesis,• But administration of salt in rats induced a concentration-dependent damage of surface mucous cell layer, and also increased replicative DNA synthesis Carcinogenesis 1996; 17: 401-406
  5. 5. Role in the pathogenesis of Gastric Cancer• Direct damage of the gastric mucosa causing excessive cell replication• Indirect effect by increasing of the mutagenic potential of N-nitroso compounds (Correa, 1992)• Damage caused by salt may also increase gastric H. pylori colonization (Fox et al., 1999; Nozaki et al., 2002), which is also supportive of an early role in the pathway
  6. 6. Potential Mechanisms• High dietary salt alters viscosity of mucous, hence facilitating exposure to carcinogenic agents such as nitrates• Persistent inflammation may promote cell proliferation and endogenous mutations• In the presence of H. pylori infection and atrophic gastritis, high salt exacerbates mucosal damage

  8. 8. Salt Intake and Intestinal MetaplasiaMeta-analyses on the association between salt intake and intestinal metaplasia, and gastriccancer (Dias-Neto et al., 2010; World Cancer Research Fund & American Institute for CancerResearch, 2007)
  9. 9. Salt Interacts with H. pylori
  10. 10. Global Stomach Cancer Statistics • Regional variations in part reflect differences in dietary patterns, particularly in European countries, and the prevalence of Helicobacter pylori infection. • CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians Volume 61, Issue 2, pages 69-90, 4 FEB 2011 DOI: 10.3322/caac.20107

  15. 15. Dietary factors and stomach cancer: a case-control study in Korea• A case-control investigation involving 213 incident cases of histologically confirmed stomach cancer and an equal number of controls, matched by age (within 2 years) and sex, was conducted from June 1990 to October 1991.• An increased risk of stomach cancer was noted among those with high consumption of stewed foods such as soybean paste stew and hot pepper-soybean stew, broiled fish, and those who liked salty food. Int J Epidemiol. 1995 Feb;24(1):33-41. Lee JK, Park BJ, Yoo KY, Ahn YO.

  17. 17. Gastric cancer and salt preference: a population-based cohort study in Korea• Design: Participants were Korean government employees, school faculty members, and their unemployed dependents, aged 30–80 y, who underwent health examinations between 1996 and 1997. In 2003, information on the gastric cancer incidence in these participants was obtained during the 6–7-y follow-up period. The final data analysis included 2,248,129 study subjects• Result : showed evidence of an increased risk of gastric cancer with salt preference. The HRs were 1.10 (95% CI: 1.04, 1.16) and 1.10 (95% CI: 1.03, 1.17) for the overall total population Am J Clin Nutr 2010;91:1289–93.

  20. 20. Stomach Cancer in China
  21. 21. Stomach cancer in 67 Chinese countiesAfter stratification, positively significant correlations were observed betweensodium and stomach cancer mortality in counties with high H. pylori prevalence(≥71.6%) and between H. pylori and stomach cancer mortality in counties withhigh urinary sodium (≥5.0 mg/mg.creatinine/12-hour)
  22. 22. • 422 gastric cancer cases and 649 community controls. Salt exposure was estimated in the year before the onset of symptoms through: sodium intake (estimated by a food frequency questionnaire (FFQ)); main food items/groups contributing to dietary sodium intake; visual analogical scale for salt intake preference; use of table salt; and duration of refrigerator ownership

  24. 24. Other Cancers ass. with Salt?• Colon cancer• Breast cancer• Pancreas cancer  No sufficient evidence

  26. 26. Conclusion• Most published epidemiological studies provide positive evidence for an association between salt or salted food consumption and stomach cancer risk• Ideally, dietary modification of salt intake, as well as eradication of H. pylori infection, is a promising strategy for gastric cancer prevention throughout the world
