Alcohol consumption and risk of gastric cancer: a cohort study of men in Kaunas, Lithuania, with up to 30 years follow-up.

Indulgence in alcohol may elevate the risk of stomach cancer in men.

​This study looked at the relationship between fondness for alcohol and the incidence of gastric (stomach) cancer. The study population included 7,150 Lithuanian men who provided information on whether they have been diagnosed with stomach cancer and their alcohol drinking habits for 30 years.
