Just another day in the office

Caller: Another thing you might want to look at - I wonder, I mean sometimes I wonder, whether this whole cancer thing isn't just a money raising opportunity.

Me: Uhhhh.

Caller: I mean, what were people doing 100, 200 years ago? They were using natural remedies.

Me: But, um, life expectancies were a lot shorter then, of course.

Caller: Were they though?

Me: Um... yes.

Yeah, very few people got cancer because they died of: wounds, leprosy, wounds, a broken leg, fever, plague, wounds, other stuff. Most people never lived long enough to get cancer. They also never washed and used leeches to "balance the humours". Way to go Middle Ages....
