I'm not sure about what this article is really referring to. DNA doubling/deletions/alterations have been happening since the very first organism, which is just a fact of evolution. Yes you could say those things have led to Diabetes and Cancer - but really those defects are (a) not present in every organism, especially not at a lethal level and (b) are pretty overshadowed by amazing adaptations such as eyes and the high sophistications of our brains.

'Mistake' kind of infers intention or creation though. Mistake? No. Are we the outcome of many millions of years of random chance and processes? Yes.
