Two thirds of cancers are based on luck

  1. Jan 9, 2015 #1
    I am just curious what people here think of this claim from the new medical study? My impression is that the effects of quantum uncertainty are rarely if ever seen in the non quantum realm. Or to put it another way, wouldn't it be more likely that the cause of these cancers is indeed from genetic and environmental causes that are not yet understood rather than a fundamental effect of the random nature of existence?
