I know of many people who currently have it. Why are so many people getting Cancer, these days?

Has it always been around, and perhaps in the old days, people merely didn't know what it was, or is it something the Government is using for perhaps population control. Is it something in our food supply, or in the air we're breathing, or what is it?

Either way, we're always hearing of someone else coming down with some type of this disease.

In your own word's, what do you think is causing this epidemic?

Food additives, more carcinogens added to tobacco, poor diet, and more of a sedentary lifestyle these days.

there are so much garbage added to our foods even stuff you buy at the grocery. and yea I think it is a form of pop control and it's helps make drug companies money to make people sick. Why do you think all over america they outlawing growing your own food. also so many people run around with a cell phone to their heads all the time and yes theres some evidence that do that alot can cause cancer. Also did you know that your wireless router at home puts off radiation which could cause cancer. another thing is getting flu and other shots. it been said that these companies put things in them that can cause cancer.oh before you start saying crazy all this can be confermed by doing a little research its all out there for anyone to read.

Actual Rates of New Onset cancer rates are about the same as they have always been... There have been found mummies found that had cancer...

But Today we have better treatment so survival rates are Much higher so we have more survivors talking about it and more people walking around that have had it or have one of the various forms so the Perception is that it's more prevalent... Also diagnosis is better and many cancers are benign, decades ago such cancers were not even diagnosed as such...

Note this applies pretty much across the board even with the scare of Cigarette smoking.... in the last 40 years there has been almost a 70% decline in smoking yet the New Onset Cancers and other diseases that were claimed to be Caused by Smoking have remained almost Constant with one exception that being Lung Cancer in Men... That has dropped about 10%... But it has slightly increased in women...

It is becuase God hates you.
He sees the evil that you do & so he hits you with disease.
God is in charge of everything.

Depends on who your "God" is, I'd say.

Notice all the post blaming one thing or the other for higher cancer rates... It's perception because the rates are the same as they have been and haven't changed over the decades....

These charts show the rate of assorted cancers has remained pretty constant and if you research it a little closer you will find the rates have remained about the same throughout History with an exception being Melanomas which are caused by solar radiation and follows human change in outdoor clothing and habits... As humans exposed more skin and spent more time exposed to direct sunlight the rates go up in relative proportions...

So, do you think it's just something of nature that happens?

Yes... DNA mutates at a Rate... there are some thing that increase mutation to a small degree such as radiation and some chemicals but only impact the natural cell mutation rates a minimum amount... what we eat, the water, air, chemicals ect. may add a small amount to the new onset rates but at the same time those same condition might help in some other areas...

For an example take Sun Light.. while we might see a small increase in malignant Melanomas we also see an increase in vitamin D production which might save more lives than are lost due to the cancers... A Chemical that might cause some additional cancers might also stop other diseases that could kill even more people that the cancers...

Sometimes we have to look at the Unintended Consequences of stuff that seem a good idea at the time...

Take a look at DDT.. It was said to be needed to be banned because it caused thin egg shells and was causing birds of prey to go extinct.. Even though Eagles were endangered 40 years before DDT was invented... But we banned it... That Banning caused mosquitoes, ticks and other disease carrying insects to thrive and it's estimated to have led to over 4 Million additional deaths world wide....

Once upon a time tin cans were sealed with Lead and caused Lead Poisoning... But more lives by a 4 to 1 margin were saved because those tin cans provided food to people that could not store food that didn't go bad and helped drop the amount of malnutrition that was rampant around the world....

I was with my Grandfather when he passed away with Lung Cancer. He went smoothly.(If you will.)

However, he had a tear in his eye, but he was pretty much out of it when he passed. He took one last breath and just stopped breathing. I was holding his hand when he died.
