Willis* refers to test-meal analyses performed on people with known differences of cancer incidence : there was no significant difference in the tests on English and Dutch people, or between upper and lower social classes. Similarly, despite marked contrasts in prevalence of gastric cancer among Chinese and Malays in Java, neither gastric secretion nor morphology of gastric mucosa showed suggestive variation. Incidental to this discussion on pros and cons of a particular theory, is an illustration of the value of geographical pathology in co-ordination and evaluation of evidence on a problem in cancer.
