Do you think pathologies have increased in number/form after the development of modern pharmachology? After all meds create many free radicals.

In brief: No

There have always been more pathologies (disorders) than doctors could take care of, and there always will be.
We are an imperfect species in an imperfect world. At first, we take care of the pathologies that are very bad and/or the ones that are very easy to treat. Then we go after the other pathologies. Existing diseases sometimes are cured, but new ones do get created, either by man or nature.
