Can you think of any human disease that does not have a possible microbial component?

I also thought of mesothelioma. Add Black Lung, too. If you are counting genetic disorders as diseases, you can add hemophilia, sickle cell anemia, and cystic fibrosis. Although genetic diseases may not have microbial causes, many have very interesting microbial interactions, as with sickle cell anemia and malaria.
