OoO I rarely see Canada in a list of baddies...

Wow Canada stop exporting asbestos already! How dispictable.

Well Canda will be sued sideways in years to come, but by then there will already be many people suffering and dying.

Your list of "Known" causes of cancer is... inaccurate. Most are, at best, suspected to be related to cancer; they are not known causes. You might want to do a little more research before pronouncing them as causes.

Yeah, we're not doing so hot these days. It's pretty sad.
The asbestos thing has been a point of contention for years and, largely, has fallen off the citizen's radar.

Agreed. There are many other factors that are important. Such as genes, a healthy immune system, lifestyle and diet.

There are known factors however such as too much stress, quality of drinking water, air we breathe and additives to our food, toiletries and oral hygiene products that may be facilitators in cancer.

I remember Benzopyrenes from smoke from vehicles, barbecues, and cigarettes.

Are you saying asbestos is still used in North America? Here it has been banned for more than 30 years. Old buildings can still contain asbestos in some places so it's not completely gone :/

Radon can be a problem but I have heard it shouldn't be a problem with good ventilation. Autoclaved aerated concrete is no longer used when building new buildings around here so it's more of a problem with somewhat older buildings.

Background radiation is also a cause of cancer and it can differ quite a lot between different places of the world.

UV rays from the sun can also cause cancer. Especially dangerous for people living near the poles.
