No. Cancer is caused by carcinogenic substances in food and water, added by the pharmaceutical companies so that they can make money from their medications. It's 2016, and yet there is no cure for cancer. Coincidence? The pharmaceutical companies would make much less money from finding a cure! They want to keep people sick and profitable!

It's 2016 /sci/! Wake up already!
>>
>>7763871

What is the point you are trying to make?

Yes, alcohol causes cancer. We've known this for some time. It's rarely mentioned which is interesting. Maybe people don't want to talk about how one of their favorite "escapes" is actually hurting them. Alcohol is toxic to nearly every organ in your body. That's part of why moderation is important.

I'm sorry anon...
I just don't want it to happen to anyone else, I want us to live cancer-free... And this is a really easy way to get started...

>>7763871

Don't forget tobacco. It kills the equivalent of a Holocaust's worth of people (6 million) each year.

>>7763898

you mean 6 gorillion right?
>>
>>7763871
Wrong.

>>7763892
fuck off back to /pol/

>>7763879
Getting there.

Temperate are more likely to observe high rates of cancer, part in due to lower solar exposure. Non-temperate countries really couldn't give a flying fuck about cancer. They have other shit to deal with like AIDs or Ebola.

It is because of this the statistics seem to (incorrectly) imply a correlation between cancer and high tobacco/alcohol use.
>>
>>7763892
Meh, cancer is a glorious and natural life form of earth, natural cell mutation, without it there would be no evolution and probably no life, cancer is live, cancer is life. Only in an upside down world would people declare "war" on it. I suspect people are growing old enough now and right into cancer other than the obvious cases of premature cancer death. I also believe if you look hard enough you would find cancerous growth in every human.

I don't even get the point of the thread, but growing up in an alcohol drenched household I keep it to social occasions and maybe a few times a year as a treat. Alcohol may manifest cancer in some way but so does life in general. Without alcohol the tax base would be hit hard and it would interfere with natural selection somewhat. A man has got to know his limitations and one of the first he figures out is how much alcohol they can drink without killing themselves.

Here's a thought.

Maybe cancer can't be stopped because it is nature's way of controlling populations. Which may explain why it is so sporadic.

Either way, im just some anon posting on a Mongolian image site, what do i know?

Yeah but alcohol helps get rid of excessive social inhibitions and thus helps with social interaction and seduction. Both of these are so much more important for actually having a successful life (basically having kids and feeding them) than not having cancer during your late years.

It is actually interesting to note that the countries cited in the OP as alcohol free countries are also countries where women are less free to choose their husband/partner (forced marriage, socially acceptable rape, etc).

So before banning alcohol maybe we should first find a way to help men seduce women without alcohol. When alcohol becomes an unnecessary evil, then we could start banning it progressively.

The Holocaust killed 11 million, 6 million of which were Jews.

This shouldn't even be a thing. Sexual attraction should be just that, not all of these other prerequisites that everyone comes up with.

You'll be ok. Newfag here 25. Drank for for 4 years straight. If not everyday, every other day. Got my liver results. Had to test for lamotragine and trazodone levels. Results came back ok. Just taper of drinking, start exercising, eating right, the whole deal and you'll be fine...hopefully.

The alcohol free countries have lower life expectancy, thus you have less time to develop cancer.

Not that guy but a large number of people who regularly consume alcohol and tobacco don't get sick, plus there are studies showing alcohol in moderation to not be bad for you.

Cancer is just bad genes and luck.

Oh look, another virgin against social habits. How original.

yeah, obviously nature has a built in way of stopping humans from over populating because of all those other times that humans over populated and took over the earth in the past right?

Hi there!

You seem to have made a bit of a mistake in your post. Luckily, the users of 4chan are always willing to help you clear this problem right up! You appear to have used a tripcode when posting, but your identity has nothing at all to do with the conversation! Whoops! You should always remember to stop using your tripcode when the thread it was used for is gone, unless another one is started! Posting with a tripcode when it isn't necessary is poor form. You should always try to post anonymously, unless your identity is absolutely vital to the post that you're making!

Now, there's no need to thank me - I'm just doing my part to help you get used to the anonymous image-board culture!

>trusting scientists who have an agenda

Actual numbers show that only a small almost insignificant amount of smokers and drinkers get seriously ill. I'll repeat it for the anon up thread: correlation=/=causation.
>>
>>7766792
What if I told you we already know the actual causal mechanisms behind smoking and drinking causing cancer?

Nice anecdote. Please share more with /sci/ in the future.
>>
>>7766801
A lot of it is grossly overstated and overwrought. I guarantee if bad thing were to start happening to smokers it would be because they're unhealthy in general, have bad genes or because they're old.

>>7766804
I haven't repeated any propaganda
