Mutagens in Cooked Food

  • Takashi Sugimura
Part of the Basic Life Sciences book series (volume 6)


The incidences of cancers in various organs of the body differ in different countries (14,100). For instance, in Japan stomach cancer is the predominant cancer of the digestive tract, but in most Western countries intestinal cancer is predominant. Japanese immigrants to the United States show a decrease in the incidence of stomach cancer with an increase in that of intestinal cancer, presumably because of change in their life style (34).
