Life Causes Cancer
It would appear that modern life is killing children, with the number of youngsters diagnosed with cancer rising 40% in the past 16 years because of air pollution, pesticides, poor diets and radiation.
That at least is what researchers at the charity Children with Cancer UK believe, they claim that there are now 1,300 more cancer cases a year compared with 1998.
Apparently, the increase is most notable in teenagers and young adults aged between 15 and 24, where the incidence rate has risen from around 10 cases in 100,000 to nearly 16.
Researchers say that although some of the rise can be explained by improvements in cancer diagnoses and more screening, the majority is probably caused by environmental factors.
Please note that word "probably", ie they are not certain!
Anyhoo, if the researchers are to be believed amongst the list of causes are:
- air pollution
- mobile phones
- solvents in household cleaners
- power lines
- CT scans
- bright light at night etc
The list is endless!
Stop breathing and stop living!
Alternatively we could go back to Victorian times, before most of these factors existed (air pollution aside). Unfortunately the infant and child mortality figures were off the scale in those days, and the chances are you would die of TB, cholera, pneumonia, measles, whooping cough or simply "old age" at around 35.
Nowadays most babies born are likely to survive into teenage-hood, hence the statistical increase in those with cancer.
In other words, because we are living longer and our babies don't die at birth or in infancy, we have swapped one form of death for another.
