Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
I am just saying you can multiply cancer rates by 10, and there is no contradiction there.

A lot of your other calculations are sound, but your [lack of] grasp of what it meast to multiply the death rate due to cancer by 10 is worrying.

Now we can discuss whether or not it is a fact that the cancer rates grew 10-fold, but not whether that is physically possible because everyone would have to die twice [as you have claimed].
