小编摘要:两千多年前的埃及木乃伊中发现癌症患者,那癌症的发生与环境的关系貌似不大。

导读:据开罗美联社报道,开罗的一位教授称,一具2200年前患有癌症的木乃伊的发现表明了癌症并非由环境所致,而是基因决定。对于癌症来讲,环境与基因的问题一直是研究癌症的关键。这具木乃伊是前列腺癌症患者,死于四十多岁。古代的生活环境与现代相比大有不同,没有工业污染和转基因食物,所以癌症并非完全由工业发展所致。

CAIRO (AP) — A professor from American University in Cairo says discovery of prostate cancer in a 2,200-year-old mummy indicates the disease was caused by genetics, not environment.

The genetics-environment question is key to understanding cancer.

AUC professor Salima Ikram, a member of the team that studied the mummy in Portugal for two years, said Sunday the mummy was of a man who died in his forties.

She said this was the second oldest known case of prostate cancer.

"Living conditions in ancient times were very different; there were no pollutants or modified foods, which leads us to believe that the disease is not necessarily only linked to industrial factors," she said.

A statement from AUC says the oldest known case came from a 2,700 year-old skeleton of a king in Russia.
