Prior to this research, the earliest known bone cancers occurred in samples approximately 1000-4000 years old.

"Evidence for cancer is extremely rare in the human fossil record. This case shows that Neanderthals, living in an unpolluted environment, were susceptible to the same kind of cancer as living humans."

I'm sure they were eating cooked food.

All this means is the bone had cancer. There is no conclusive evidence that:

he died from the cancer

the tumor wasn't caused by injury or infection

he was killed by another animal whereas his health would've carried him well past 100

Or even that the age is correct, many date changes have occurred in the past.

or even how old the man was when he died

all that's conclusive is a bone with a tumor

Cancer has repeatedly been linked to heat-created toxins found in cooked foods.

THANK YOU! I knew something was fishy about that. Ugh, "science" is supposed to be unbiased, but they are trying to find things that only fit  within their box. Makes for bad science.
