I would like to see the correlation between use of the chemicals and cancers over the same time period. I see many of you saying, “oh it has been in use since”, that does not make it right. And how many children have been diagnosed with learning disabilities since that same time period. Life is about learning and if you continue to do the same thing after receiving more relevant information, means you did not learn anything at all. Stop being narrow minded and look at the big picture. There are more cancers, more kids with ADHD, autism and learning disabilities than any other time in history. It is the scientist job to determine why. They did and now they are trying to do something about it.
It appears that as they get a handle on a few cancers more are emerging. I will dig a little deeper to the stats. As the rate of cancer deaths decrease the rate of diagnosis for some have increased.
It’s not necessarily that more are emerging. We are simply getting better at spotting them, we on average live longer which means it’s more likely to happen, dying of fewer things that killed many of us early on. Cancer is an almost inevitable event if human biology, we just found a way to get ahead of it.
Yes, some have increased, that is why it is the overall incidence rate. The decline is impressive given the fast aging population (me) and that age is the biggest risk factor for cancer.
The decline is impressive also given that technology has enabled doctors to find cancer much more easily.
As we age cancer is almost inevitable.
As an aside, for those anti-gmo/glyphosate folks out there, the decline in incidence rates exactly match the advent of gmo crops and the increased use of glyphosate. Best regards.
