I am a 28 yo half black half asian male. very active, 165 lbs 9%bodyfat.. 22.9 bmi.. normal bp and am bradycardic because of my better than average physical condition. My question is.. I dont have a great diet, at all. I dont really watch what I eat. I dont eat mcdonalds, but I will eat lots of pizza and other processed foods. My cholesterol has been 121 and 135 the last 2 times Ive checked it in the last year. Because of my terrible diet, and the recent reports, I am now worried about stomach cancer. If I eat something not healthy early in the morning on an empty stomach, lets say, drink a carbonated beverage, Ill get a slight pain in my upper left quad. I used to have IBS when i was younger, that used to also make me nauseous, but not anymore. No one has had cancer is my family, not in the last 3 to 4 generations at least. I just wanted to know should I be concerned about a potential correlation between my low cholesterol levels and gastric cancer?
