What A Surprise: "Anal, Throat Cancers On Rise Among Young Adults"

From July 27, 2014 CBS Atlanta:
ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS Atlanta) – According to a new study, anal and throat cancers have increased over the past 35 years in adults younger than 45.
“The increase in the incidence of oropharyngeal cancer among younger men and of anal cancer among younger women are disturbing, because there are no screening programs for early detection of these cancers,” Dr. Lorraine Shack, an assistant professor of oncology at the University of Calgary’s Cumming School of Medicine, and co-author on the study, toldHealthDay....
They also found that anal cancer among women has doubled, going from 0.7 to 1.5 for every 100,000 people. 
Hmmm.  I wonder what might have changed over the last 35 years?  GMO food?  Fluoride in our water?  What could it be?
