Dietary fat intake and risk of gastric cancer: a meta-analysis of observational studies.

Individuals on high-fat diets are more likely to develop stomach cancer than those on low-fat diets.

This study examined the effect of regular ingestion of fatty foods on gastric (stomach) cancer risk.  Researchers conducted a meticulous meta-analysis on data obtained from 22 published studies. They found out that subjects who consistently ate large amounts of fatty foods had higher chances of developing gastric cancer than those on low fat diets. The findings of this meta-analysis show that the risk of gastric cancer may increase with generous consumption of diets rich in fatty foods.
