Is Cancer Man-made?

A recent study by University of Manchester scientists has strongly suggested that ... cancer is a modern, man-made disease caused by environmental factors such as pollution and diet.
Egyptian Mummies In the extensive study conducted at the University's KNH Centre for Biomedical Egyptology, scientists examined hundreds of mummies and found ... no signs of cancer—except for one isolated case.

Professor Michael Zimmerman said: "In an ancient society lacking surgical intervention, evidence of cancer should remain in all cases." Therefore, the virtual absence of tumors and malignancies in mummies must necessarily be interpreted as evidence that cancer was indeed rare in ancient times.     
 The 17th Century Ushers Cancer In
It wasn't until the 17th century that the first reports of cancer appeared in scientific literature—such as cancer of the scrotum (found in chimney sweeps in 1775, caused by soot particles); and nasal cancer found in users of snuff (finely ground tobacco) in 1761.

The University of Manchester study indicates that cancer-causing factors exist only in modern, industrialized societies—and cancer is fueled by the excesses of modern life.

The food you eat ... the air you breathe ... the clothes you wear ... the water you drink ... the personal care products you use ... the medications you take ... the water you bathe in ... virtually everything you consume, and everything you do—or are exposed to nowadays,—causes cancer.
  Here are just a few examples of the cancer causing contaminants:
  •  Tobacco (including second-hand and third-hand smoke)
  • Genetically modified food
  • Most laundry detergents
  • Commercial hair dyes
  • Air pollution (including carbon monoxide, methylene
    chloride, and acrolein)
  • Granite countertops (which emit radon)
  • Rancid peanuts and seeds
  • Canola oil
  • Canned tomatoes
  • Food laced with pesticides
  • Chemicals from aerosol cans
  • Mammograms
  • X-Rays
  • Food microwaved in plastic containers (including
    plastic wrap, the plastic trays that come with frozen
    TV dinners, and even plastic baby bottles)
  • Environmental pollutants (such as asbestos, benzene, and
Professor Rosalie David, at the Faculty of Life Sciences, said:
There is Nothing in the Natural Environment That Can Cause Cancer ... So It Has to Be a Man-Made Disease

There is an abundance of cancer-causing (not just cancer, but, disease-causing) factors in the modern world.

My personal take on this:

I am a nobody when it comes to making scientific claims. However, I can make personal claims:
Ever since I was dagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, I changed my lifestyle and it certainly changed my life.
Despite having Progressive MS, I am relapse and attack free and I am able to do much more than I did when I was first diagnosed, and live a very fulfilling and active life.
I stopped gluten, dairy and sugar, I take a food allergy (sensitivity test) every two years, changed my clothing and have nothing artificial and with chemicals in my life.
I have three air filters in my space, a shower water purifier and an alkaline water system for my consumption.
I will never tire of saying that in our bid to grow produce that is pest free, and analkaline waterd that which will grow, faster and bigger, we have sacrificed human life.
The introduction of food additives and `taste enhancers` have made us fatter and sicker.
Well done to the governments for allowing the food industry to do this!
Well done to the medical profession for not seeing the progression of disease and finding the true links between toxicity and illness! Well done again for continuously prescribing drugs and for giving everybody a `one size fits all` treatment
And the biggest WELL DONE TO THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY for making drugs that give us side effects - more illnesses that now have to be poisoned by the very poisons you make!
How very very convenient!
Wake up people. Wake up and see the real picture.
