4. Malignancy. From 5 to 14 years :— 1. Accidents. 2. Malignancy. The highest incidence of malignancy in children is during the first 5 years of life, with its peak in the first and second years, suggesting an embryonal character of neoplasia. —There is an overall male pre­ ponderance in a ratio of 3 : 2. The distribution of the five common neoplastic conditions, accounting for 80-90 per cent of all cases, are, according to Cohen and Lee, as follows :— 1. Leukaemia: Mostly of acute lymphocytic type and representing the commonest condition in children.

17, 789. GASTRIC CANCER 43 variously estimated as having a 6 to 10 times higher incidence of gastric cancer. Doll* has compared diets in Japan and Iceland; they appear to be different. In contrast to the rich animal protein and fat in Iceland, Japanese diet, consisting mainly of boiled rice and vegetables with little fish, is poor in fats and protein. The absence of an obvious common cancerigenic factor in the diet introduces the consideration of food habits and methods of preparation, trace elements of possible carcinogenic chemicals derived from soil and/or water-supplies, and other possible pathogenic agents.

B. Reticulin-cell sarcoma is also more common in males in a ratio of 3 : 2. 4. Wilms's tumour: The sexes are equally affected. I t presents mainly during the first 2 years of life: it is rare after 8 years. 5. Neuroblastoma: The sex ratio is 3 males: 2 females. The condi­ tion occurs mainly during the first and second years of life; two-thirds of all cases occur in children under 3 years. —The study of cancer trends, its progressive variations of occurrence over a period of time, in different age-groups, among different communities and social classes, under various environ­ mental influences, and in all sorts of conditions of life, may be of value in aiding elucidation of causative agencies and biological behaviour of neoplasia.
