Gastrointestinal Cancer: Risk Factor & Prevention

Different gastrointestinal cancers have different risk factors. Some risk factors, like smoking, can be changed. Others, like a person’s age or family history, can’t be changed. Having a risk factor, or even several risk factors, does not mean that you will get the cancer. And many people who get the disease may have few or no known risk factors. Few gastrointestinal cancer risk factors include cigarette smoking, obesity, chronic pancreatitis, eating foods preserved through pickling or that contain nitrates, infection with Helicobacter pylori, alcohol abuse, inflammatory bowel disease, adenomatous polyps

While no cancer is completely preventable, the number of new cases of cancer in a group or population is lowered. Hopefully, this will lower the number of deaths caused by cancer. It is estimated that changes in diet and physical activities could reduce the incidence of gastrointestinal Cancer by up to 75%.
