Gastric or stomach cancer is one of the most common cancers of the digestive tract. The incidence of this cancer is approximately 2 in 10,000. The incidence has declined over the years and the decline is attributed to increased Vitamin C intake and decreased intake of salt cured and smoked foods. Gastric cancer affects men twice as often as women and is more common in African-Americans than Caucasians.
