A blood and cancer specialist said: Long-term consumption of smoked, dried or salted foods is a contributing factor to stomach cancer

Dr. Maryam Boshoor said: One of the most common cancers in Iran is stomach cancer, which unfortunately has no symptoms in the early stages and is diagnosed late.

Pointing out that long-term consumption of smoked and dried foods or salt is a factor for stomach cancer, he clarified: due to the high concentration of nitrates, these foods are prone to stomach cancer.
