Scientists from the University of Manchester may have just revealed a startling ancient truth about cancer. The findings from an extensive study of remains and literature from ancient Egypt, Greece, and earlier periods strongly suggest that cancer is a modern, man-made disease.
Out of the hundreds of mummies the scientists examined at the University’s KNH Centre for Biomedical Egyptology, they found only 1 isolated case of cancer—just 1!

These early examples—such as cancer of the scrotum found in chimney sweeps in 1775 and nasal cancer found in users of snuff (finely ground tobacco) in 1761—highlight the link between industrialization and cancer. As cancer-causing substances like soot and snuff spread across the globe, so did cancer…
