Maybe I am missing something, but the graphs at the site that Dale referred
to (http://www.cancer.org/statistics/index.html, show that the only cancer
that is rapidly increasing is lung cancer. Most of the other cancers have
increased slightly, stayed level or decreased, and I expect that more
misdiagnosis of cancer went on in the 30s and 40s than in the 80s and 90s.
The statistics presented do not show a "health disaster," at least not one
that is not caused by peoples personal choices, i.e. smoking.
And these statistics are from an organization, that, if they were
unscrupulous, I do not have any evidence that they are anything but
truthful), might want to portray a more dire situation, to spur donations.
