1. Cancer caused by modern man as it was virtually non-existent in ancient world.
2. Carcinogens, Carcinogens everywhere from microwaved food to all types of additives in processed foods like rancid cooking oil, colorants, flavorants, preservatives and insecticides, pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers in fruits and vegetables.
3. A study of Egyptian mummies and ancient skeletons has found little evidence that they suffered from cancer. The authors of the study suggest that this means cancer is a modern disease.
4. Cancer is a modern man-made disease caused by the excesses of modern life, a new study suggests. The findings suggest that it is modern lifestyles and pollution levels caused by industry that are the main cause of the disease and that it is not a naturally occurring condition.
5. The study showed 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. In industrialized societies, cancer is second only to cardiovascular disease as a major cause of death.
6. But aren’t there elements of modern life that cause cancers? Yes, indeed, but most of them are down to poor lifestyle choices that people can do something about, not, as implied, because they are drowning in a sea of carcinogens from which there is no escape.
7. Smoking is the most significant of these, causing around a quarter of all cancers globally, these deaths could be avoided by a complete ban on smoking.
8. Other major lifestyle factors that pose cancer risks include heavy drinking, which can lead to liver and gullet cancers, sunbathing, which can lead to skin cancer, and obesity and lack of exercise, which can promote cancers of the gut. Pesticides and some industrial chemicals can cause cancer.
9. Cooking Oil – Bacteria and Free Radicals – if used oil is not properly strained and stored after it cools, bacteria feeds on food particles left in the oil. Unrefrigerated oil becomes anaerobic and leads to the growth of Clostridium botulinum, which causes botulism, a potentially fatal food poisoning. Refrigerating or freezing oil retards bacterial growth. Rancid — meaning old and stale — oil contains free radicals, molecules that can damage cells and lead to increased cancer risk, as well as affect the quality of your food. The good news is that your nose can easily identify rancid oil.
