Holy Snapping Duckshit—According to the report "Cancer in Australia: An Overview 2012" there are 340 people in Australia diagnosed with cancer every day. That would be 2,380 per week.

Depending which article you read the worldwide cancer rates have been increasing annually by an average of 1.2 percent since 1950. This works out to a 2.1x increase in cancers being diagnosed since then.
While we have developed numerous new ways to try and treat cancers some cancers such as non-Hodgkin's lymphomas, multiple myelomas, and liver cancers have become much more aggressive.
There are lots of theories but there does not appear to be any generally agreed reason (or reasons) why the incident rate of cancer is increasing or why some cancers are becoming more aggressive and harder to treat. The list of possible causes is almost endless and includes:
- The increasing level of airborne toxins from all kinds of sources including industry, motor vehicles, and jet airplanes.
- The residue of poisons left on our fruit and vegetables.
- Toxins we are introducing into our meats.
- Artificial sweeteners used in drinks and food preparation.
- Too much fat in our diets.
- Not enough of 'the right' fat in our diets.
- Refined flour and refined flour products.
- 'Processed' meats.
- Toxins in our houses from the use of cleaning products and poisons used to pre-treat wood, carpets, furniture, etc.
- Toxins in our food the leaches over from containers, especially plastic containers.
- Toxins in our drinking water, some purposely introduced to keep the water 'clean', others accidently introduced.
- Electro-magnetic radiation from all kinds of source including electric blankets and 'smart' meter boxes.
- Radio waves from the massive increase in the use of radio frequencies for radio, TV, WiFi, 3G, etc.
- Ozone (O3) which comes out of our LCD TVs in small quantities, and our laser printers.
And the list goes on and on covering fluorescent lighting, atomised rubber in the air, free-radicals, the use of microwave ovens, and probably many more I can't remember. Lately in the news there are fingers pointing at soy milk. Well if soy is one of the causes it won't worry me. As far as I know I have never had soy milk in my life.
