Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. gastric caner occurrence [ Time Frame: 4 years ]
    gastric cancer proved by gastroscopy biopsy

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. All cause mortality [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
  2. gastric tissue DNA methylation change of selected genes [ Time Frame: 4 years ]
    All patients have gastric biopsy through gastroscopy at the enrollment time and the last follow-up. DNA methylation status of selected genes are tested.
