Worldwide, gastric cancer is the fourth most common cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death (Parkin et al. 2005). In 2002, approximately 933,937 men and women were diagnosed with gastric cancer, and 700,349 died from gastric cancer worldwide (Parkin et al. 2005). In the United States, gastric cancer is relatively uncommon, and ranked fourteenth among both incident cancers and cancer deaths with approximately 22,280 new cases and 11,430 deaths in 2006 (Jemal et al. 2006). The death rate from gastric cancer has steadily decreased over the last several decades in the United States (Jemal et al. 2006) and worldwide (Parkin et al. 2005), suggesting that environmental factors such as diet have a critical role in the etiology of this malignancy. Growing evidence indicates that gastric cardia and noncardia cancer differ in etiology (Devesa et al. 1998). For example, Helicobacter pyloriinfection is an established strong risk factor for gastric noncardia cancer, but it...
