Dr Oz: Stomach Cancer Increase in Caucasian Women
Several years ago we were actually seeing a decline in Stomach Cancer rates, but in recent years they have been on the rise, more specifically in women, and doctors are not quite sure why this is the case. Dr. Oz shares that this sudden rise in Stomach Cancers is surprising to him because while African American women and Hispanic women have been at a higher risk, Caucasian women have not until now. Dr. Robynne Chutkan, a Gastroenterologist, explains that recent studies point to diet as a possible factor because women are eating differently than they used to, including more foods that can cause Stomach Cancer. She says the study also showed that the Stomach Cancer itself may be forming differently and attacking more aggressively in certain populations. There is also a particular infection that could be contributing to Stomach Cancer and its increase in Caucasian women.
