Cancer in Antiquity

After slogging through a bunch of articles like this one based on a research study that claims there was no cancer in antiquity, I discovered that the New Scientist did some digging and found people to point out the major problems with the study and the researchers' conclusions. Journalism win!

UPDATE - 11/22/10: One of my colleagues, Paula Veiga, points out the shortcomings of the Nature article in an essay in ArchNews.
