I do not agree that it is manmade. Cancer cells develop and are fought off on a daily basis in the human body. However, sometimes the situation becomes of that to provide a perfect growing environment for the abnormal cells. When killer cells can no longer keep the cancerous cells at bay, a person is then found to have " cancer". And besides, people live longer, and diagnositcs are more readily available and correct more often, we have to die of something. Diabetes is now considered rampant in the US population, but many GI and Metabolic specialist have said that if we all live long enough we will all have DM. Does that mean DM is man made? No, it just means the situations in which we all now live provide the perfect environment for it to thrive. If a person eats healthy enough to have a cholesterol level around 100-140, it actually inhibits the function of Tcells and helps cancer to thrive.
