This thread is a perfect example of a piece of greenie horsesh!t. The idea that cancers are increasing due to more industrial or other synthetic chemicals is pure nonsense. There are a couple of cancers that have increased over the past 100 years. Lung cancer, and Karposi's sarcoma (caused by AIDS). I do not think I need to elaborate on why lung cancer has increased. Apart from those, cancers have not increased in rate, except in line with the increase in the number of older people. Cancer rates can be adjusted for age. When we do that, we find such things as breast cancer and prostate cancer rates have not changed much, if at all, over 100 years. Overall, longevity has increased substantially in the past 200 years. We live longer and much healthier lives than any time in human history. Those who try to say otherwise are p#ss&ng into the wind.
