    Default Is Cancer Getting Worse ????

    OK Not a post asking for hugs and kisses at all, but lost my Uncle Friday eve to cancer. Great bloke and all that (and he was) .
    But after mentally analyzing recent years every fucking funeral I have been to in the last 5 years have all been cancer related. In-laws, friends, relatives, friends of friends e.t.c

    100% I have had to visit cancer related funerals. Now I know cancer treatment is improving but is this negated by the fact that cancer is becoming more rife among us all ???

    Would like opinions on this. (slightly going on a tangent) Have recently read articles linking aspartame as a MAJOR cancer causer, also shows how and why it was accepted so readily by governments e.t.c but that is for another thread me thinks. My uncle did like his "diet drinks"....



    Anyway life is shit and short what you all think about cancer getting worse. I honestly have been to at least 5 funerals cancer related in recent years.... None previously.

    Very unfortunate for you. Not evidence though, just anecdotal.
    Open your heart. Die.

    Thanks to Mule

    After I was diagnosed with a 50% chance of having cancer, suddenly I seem to have found loads of people in my life with cancer. I'm guessing maybe more people decided to talk about it rather than anything else.

    Reminds me of when I was a kid and my parents would get a new car. First thing we would notice is that it seemed like everyone else bought the same car as us at the same time.

    Thanks to Over Carl

    Aspartame has been discussed in depth on here before, I am on the fence as we have users from both sides who have very good arguments and it's a subject I know nothing about other than what I hear and a lot of articles are sensationalist.

    It could be that we have better diagnosis now compared to years back but I understand what you are saying, it does appear to me more common nowadays. I start to wonder about the effects of the hazardous waste that is getting into the sea from the Japanese nuclear stations.

    Some good points thanks. Aspartame was going a bit off of my own topic by me tbh lol

    I think it is getting more prevalent as we continue to fuck up our planet day by day. As mentioned above better diagnosis is probably a lot to do with it. I remember about 15 years ago my Gran dying from cancer very suddenly, the death certificate just said natural causes/old age as she had never been officially diagnosed.

    People are living longer therefore greater chance of cancer I'd say - 20 years ago 65 wasn't a bad age, now it's relatively young still.

    I visitied this thread when there were no replies and didn't quite know what to say without sounding a prat. Hopefully this comes out right.
    When you start getting older you will inevitably loose friends and family....the older you get the more you will loose, that bit is just natural im afraid. As for causes of death - Well compared to years ago we see loads more die of a diagnosed case of cancer than before. The cause of this as said above is better diagnosis...earlier diagnosis and the fact that the older you get (population in general are living longer) the more likely you are to end up with some form of cancer.
    The other side of things is that we are only in this generation really beginning to realise that some things can cause or contribute to someone having cancer. Too much sunburn, too much cigarettes, breathing in certain gases ect ect ect. Im afraid the people above say 40 in my opinion were/have still lived in relative bliss to all this. All of this stuff coupled with the better diagnosis means we all know a lot more people who develop cancer.
    Bloody horrible disease and i send my condolences to you and yours.

    Thanks to DavidF

    Going a bit off topic. If you were all handed an envelope and told the contents told you how you would die would you open it ?

    Don't think it would be a good idea but don't know if I could resist. I am a nosy cunt ;-)
