Ancient people, from all observable evidence, had less occurrence of cancer. Why would this be? Certainly environment and diet play a role in this. Today our environment has more pollution and our diet is full of unnatural chemicals. As the below article notes, genetics plays a part too. In fact, researchers are discovering that mutations in your genetic code make you more susceptible to cancer. So while researchers may never know for sure what causes higher cancer rates today vs in ancient times, my bet is that it is a combination of all three. This is yet more evidence that mutations continue to build in our genomes generation after generation causing more death, disease and disorders. The ancient people had far fewer mutations because they were closer in time to the perfect beginning that God originally created. As a result, their genomes were more pure and suffered less from cancer. From this insight we can also see that God originally intended this world to be good and free from affliction and death. Unfortunately, when man sinned and effectively told God to "buzz off", God did step back. The world you see today is the result.
