Your quite right, cancer is very strongly correlated to environmental exposures found in this modern world.

Removal of exposure virtually eliminates cancer risk through old age.

In other words most cancer is preventable but who wants to give up plastic , household cleaners, synthetic flooring, ban various industrial processes, remove chlorine and ban synthetic flame retardant furniture?
