According to the professor Zhaoshen Li, Yan’an had a high incidence of gastric carcinoma; based on this reality, the Clinical Research Center decided to launch the project in Northern Shaanxi. According to the statistics in 1992, there were more than 2,600 patients with gastric carcinoma in Yan’an, and more than 95% of the patients were advanced when they were detected.

According to the Director Yichao Feng, the symptoms of gastric carcinoma were not obvious, but people’s living habits were very important. “Eat less pickled things. For example, Yan’an people prefer pickled vegetables, which have higher carcinogens”. As Director Yichao Feng said, “Although the high-risk population of gastric carcinoma is over 40 years old, with the improvement of living standards and food diversity, patients with gastric carcinoma have gradually become younger”. “The presence of cancer has little to do with age, and it mainly depends on eating habits”.
