This doesn't sound all that scientific to me, but it's interesting.  Does it really make sense that cancers are a recent phenomenon?  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1320507/Cancer-purely-man-say-scientists-finding-trace-disease-Egyptian-mummies.html
 
And if it's true, what could possibly be done about it in the modern world filled with plastics, electronic signals, artificial ingredients in our foods, our perfurmes, our deodorants, in the fabrics with which we clothe ourselves; in our automobile interiors, and absolutely everywhere?

Who knows. I have seen reports of babies die of cancer. But Recent phenomina ~ ? I doubt it.

The oldest recorded case of prostate cancer dates back to a Scythian king in 700 BC. This case was posthumously diagnosed obviously but many cases have been discovered by looking at bones and such that determine prostate cancer as the cause. Here is an interesting article written by a friend of mine in the Miami Herald...It isn't about that king but the write up is cool...

This article was up for discussion two years ago as well...here is that link...

also - keep in mind the changing perception of what cancer is... in the early part of the century people died and that was it
... often families did not have the money or knowledge to find out what happened
... and in the 1950's it was common to "whisper" the C-word for fear of getting it
... and when my Mom got cancer in 1974 - some of her friends would not hug her since it was viewed that Cancer was now a virus - and they were afraid of catching the virus...
....now we know better .. sorta ....

Prostate cancer incidence varies 60-fold globally, which strongly suggests the roles of lifestyle and dietary factors in its cause.

This multiplication factor is striking, yet some people are still holding out for the double-blind, controlled study that conclusively proves without doubt that they should change their lifestyle and diet to help stack the odds in their favor against PC.

 

So, to the point of the original post, cancers are not new, but we are absolutely causing them to accelerate.

We cannot ignore the genetic predisposition.  Neither can we ignore tobacco, dry cleaning fluids, formaldehyde in our carpet, building products, everyday living. Microwaves, agent orange, pesticides, lawn care products, exhaust fumes, even to much sunshine. And the list goes on and on.  I only hope it is a better world for our grandchildren.

I will get off my soap box now.  Sorry.

Beware articles in the English Daily Mail. I can't recall seeing one that had any real value: I can recall seeing dozens that were purely sensationalistic.
Diagnosed ‘96: Age 54: Stage T2b: PSA 7.2: Gleason 7: No treatment. Jun '07 PSA 42.0 - Bony Metastasis: Aug '07: Intermittent ADT: PSA 2.3 Aug '10
