Animal Cancer

Not too long ago, I had a conversation with a co-worker about veganism. He just could not fathom the notion that meat and dairy were unhealthy for him and that they could contribute to him developing cancer. He stated that whatever was good for lions must surely be good for humans. He wanted to know if lions or other animals get cancer- As if their contracting cancer would derail my argument.
The first thing that came to my mind was the polluting and destruction of the planet that contributes to cancer as well. I knew this would be way too much for a watercooler chat at work, so I didn't even bother...

Cancer is killing animals in the wild. And it is our fault!

Quite sad and another testament to the guilt of humankind and industrial capitalism.
