Stomach cancer kills, Avoid excessive intake of the following

Stomach cancer is an abnormal growth of cells that begins in the stomach. The stomach is a muscular sac located in the upper middle of your abdomen, just below your ribs. Your stomach receives and holds the food you eat and then helps to break down and digest it.

if you want to live a long life, there are three things you should avoid ingesting in excess: alcohol, cigarettes, and caffeine.

Smoking

Some evidence has linked cigarette smoking to many types of cancer, including stomach cancer. Smokers are at greater risk of developing cancer than non-smokers.

Alcohol

Ethanol (pure alcohol) and its toxic by-product acetaldehyde damaging cells by binding with DNA and causing cells to replicate incorrectly. Influencing hormone levels, which can modify how cells grow and divide. Direct tissue damage, increasing the absorption of other carcinogens.

caffeine

Over 7.5 years of follow-up, 3567 developed digestive cancer among 471,779 participants. There were 88 cases of hepatocellular carcinoma and a marked association was observed for hepatocellular carcinoma in coffee drinkers (HR 0.50, 95% CI 0.29, 0.87), which was similar for instant (HR 0.51, 95% CI 0.28, 0.93) and ground coffee (HR 0.47, 95% CI 0.20, 1.08). We did not observe significant consistently reduced risks of other individual digestive cancers amongst coffee drinkers.
