ABSTRACT
The article talks about the author's findings on a study on occurrence of cancer in the U.S. He claims that cancer incidence has exploded in the industrial era. In the U.S., it increased, 0.1 percent every year, from 1975 to 1994, for women and 1.8 percent, for men. He says that cancer mortality world-wide shows congruent increases among industrialized countries. Also he claims that cancer cases have almost doubled since the early 20th century.
