    Cancer is "purely man-made"

    Cancer 'is purely man-made' say scientists after finding almost no trace of disease in Egyptian mummies | Mail Online

    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.

    Look for this correlation:

    Green Revolution to Cancer Rates.

    A disturbing trend ensues.

    I'm a bit sceptical, I can understand that modern vices can exacerbate the rates, but to say it is purely man made is bull****, skin cancer is caused by radiation from the sun, and I have read of cases of increased cancer rates in villages in rural area due to water being near uranium, or other radioactive material deposits.

    If you live long enough, you will most likely get cancer. Egyptians didn't have that long of a life span.

    This is absolutely ludicrous. There are any number of factors that lead to cancer and yeas a few have to do with exposure to chemicals, or substances that were not around 2000 years ago.

    But such things as diet and exposure to naturally appearing elements that could cause or prevent cancer.

    Mostly my problem id the sample size, and genetic predisposition to either get or not get cancer. We know it runs in some families and not in others.

    Scientists are quick to come up with theories but they are just theories, not proof or fact.

    By using all my knowledge, experience, and observations of life I present the following theory.

    Since I was a teenager a long time ago I have heard consistently that Marijuana is a gate way drug and all Junkies got started by smoking pot.

    Therefore anyone who smokes pot will eventually become a Junkie or so their logic says.

    To that I say bolder dash.

    My theory which is every bit as sound and much more correct because it cannot be denied as anything but fact based, is that every single Junkie regardless of sex or age when they first become addicted to hard drugs all and I mean every last Junkie started on this very same substance as a child before ever partaking in pot, smack, uppers, downers, hallucinogens, natural or man made.

    That substance which is, by use of the same logic about pot being a gate way drug should immediately band and anyone caught using it should do time to prevent the inevitable addiction on hard drugs.

    This dangerous substances use by one and all can also be tracked back to all criminals. Rapists, armed robbers, murderers, petty thieves, all of them every got their start on Milk.

    That ubiquitous white liquid found in the stomachs of not only ever human child but every mammal on earth and the seas and water ways every where.

    And that my friends is science logic and theory at work.

    That concludes our broadcast F L I M at 11:00.

    medical science was non-existant until "modern times". people just got sick and died and no one knew why. to assume that you can make such a broad generalization about cancer from looking at a couple hundred mummies is ridiculous. think about it...who got mummified? rich people and royalty. in those societies who was the most healthy? rich people and royalty. the "commoners" were the ones most likely to have disease issues and the least likely to have been mummified.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    I can't wait until someone draws a correlation between the rise of a particular political movement / party and a sharp increase in cancer rates.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Cancer rates have been increasing since the Republicans formed, same with the rates of STD's and bestiality.

    Sharks are the only animals that don't develop cancer cells.
