Infectious disease killed everyone too early for cancer to develop, and calories weren't as cheap and plentiful as they are today for us all to become fat lards now, (us being amerifags).

Kind of skews your thoughts on it. Cancer and Heart disease did not suddenly get allot worse, it is just that since we pretty much removed infectious disease from the wheel, the next 2 largest causes took it's spot.

Well obviously if infectious diseases go down then the other larger ones are going to go up. You still need 100% total.

All that says is scientist have done good with knocking out diseases, and the longer you live the more chance you have of your heart giving out or getting cancer.

32% of our deaths nowadays come directly from Tumblr. When will it stop?

That's odd, my study shows different results...

This may sound as a really dumb question. But how do people actually get cancer?

I know some people get lungcancer from smoking, but what about other forms of cancer?

when cells make a fatal flaw in reproducing/splitting... This happens many times but usually the body corrects the mistake

Watch this, it gets a bit technical though

I dunno guys, I see this as excellent progress! Holy 			****		! Diseases kill us less now?    
Are you telling me that our worst remaining enemies are cancer caused by genetics, and heart disease(which also comes from life choices AND genetics)?    
   
While we're all assuming it's all the fault of fatties eating twinkies; let's think for a second.....    
   
We're now more likely to die of cell mutations outside of our control, and our own food... than we are of dying from malaria, HIV, HPV, flu, asthma, polio, or even cystic infections in our nervous systems!  In the end, we are our own worst killer.   
   
Guys, simply because something takes up a large space on a pie chart, it doesn't mean that the cases of that specific item have increased. All it says is that it takes a greater percentage of the graph itself, but for all we know;    
   
THANKS TO THE GLORIOUS AND MAJESTIC BLESSINGS OF SCIENCE AND ALL THINGS NON-RELIGIOUS  fedora tip   , humanity has progressed forward and has reduced the threat of every other cause of death, while cancer and heart disease remained statistically the same.    
   
Look at that...not long ago in the 18th century, we were dying from the common cold, gutting ourselves with rusty surgical equipment bare-handed, with our lifespans no greater than 40 years.    
   
But look at us now, we can ride our bikes with no handle bars!    
We've gone from 40 years, to 80 year lifespans in less than a millennium!    
Our chariots are now called cars, powered by machines that are powered by explosions, FUELED by the dead remains of creatures from long ago!    
   
   
That 			****		.. that 			******		 cool...			****		 yeah
