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.
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.

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.”
