The older you are, the longer you have been exposed to carcinogens and the longer the chance for cells to become cancerous.
The people in the record books for the oldest ages mostly died of cardiovascular related issues. Hearts get tired eventually.
It's still incorrect to say that age = cancer, when it is carcinogens that = cancer. Fewer carcinogens, lesser exposure. The distinction is subtle but important.
