Gene Patents and Cancer may have no connection.
Authored by: Wol on Sunday, June 30 2013 @ 02:46 PM EDT
Dietary sugar is a major carcinogen!

Get your blood-sugar down to the level our bodies are designed to handle (ie not
Western sugar-laden levels) and lots of diseases will just disappear, including
probably many cancers.

Cheers,
Wol

Gene Patents and Cancer may have no connection.

Look into it. Decide for yourself.
It's nonsense. But I'm sure it sells a lot of books.

It may or may not have a connection

... one thing that's almost a certainty:

    by allowing other sources to perform their own research into the genes - the knowledge base of the genetic material will increase much faster then if the gene was patentable

All animals are susceptible to cancer
Authored by: Winter on Monday, July 01 2013 @ 04:26 AM EDT
Any attempt to attribute cancer to modern diets fails to explain that all
animals will die of cancer when getting old enough. Irrespective of their diet.

There are "modern" causes known that can increase the risk of cancer:
Smoking, alcohol, and anything the increases the mutation rate (e.g., UV and
X-ray radiation). Remove these, and human cancer risks return to levels close to
those of other animals.

All the rest, from sugar, red-meat, to viruses are marginal for overall cancer
risks.

Attempts to blame it on "diet" are largely "blaming the
victim".

Except, that modern diets make people grow old. And old people are prone to get
cancer.
