    I guess one does learn something everyday in this forum. Another useless piece of information to occupy my brain cells but I thank you for the information.

    Cancer is a man-made disease fuelled by the excesses of modern life, a study of ancient remains has found.
    Tumours were rare until recent times when pollution and poor diet became issues, the review of mummies, fossils and classical literature found.
    A greater understanding of its origins could lead to treatments for the disease, which claims more than 150,000 lives a year in the UK.

    Um... people didn't live long enough to get cancer.

    Re: Cancer is "purely man-made"

    Cancer is a disease of age. I have studied cancer extensively in my undergrad work and I'm in a senior level class right now that specifically focuses on cancer biology. Carcinogens have always existed. Cancer develops when the right mutations happen at the right spots on DNA. They accumulate over time, and it only takes 1 cell mutated in all the right (or wrong i should say) places in order for it to become cancerous. Even then the tumor must acquire more in order to become malignant. Cancer is very complex, but it isn't man-made. It's a disease of age, environment, and lifestyle.

    A relief from what?

    Sharks don't attack lawyers out of professional courtesy.
