Cancer 'is Purely Man-Made' Say Scientists After Finding Almost No Trace of Disease in Egyptian Mummies

Cancer is a man-made disease, fuelled by the excesses of modern life, study of ancient remains from fossils to mummies has concluded.

A review of Egyptian mummies, fossil records dating back to dinosaurs and classical literature found tumours to be extremely rare until recent times, when factors from pollution to poor diet made life more toxic.

They discovered that the disease rate has risen dramatically since the Industrial Revolution, in particular childhood cancer – proving that the rise is not simply due to people living longer

Environmental contamination is a theme this blog pushes a fair bit.

Don't be assuming that all those great new products we are eating, spraying on ourselves, using on our cars and houses are not going to cause any harm.
