Housecall for Health: Stress & Cancer
Many people assume that stress contributes to the development of cancer, but new research further shows that that idea is far from proven.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon reports in today’s “Housecall for Health”:
New research suggests stress is not a factor in the development of cancer. A 20-year study from University College in London found no evidence of a link between job stress and overall cancer risk, specifically colorectal, lung, breast and prostate cancers.
Scientists say chronic stress can trigger an inflammatory response in the body, but previous beliefs that alone can cause cancer is a big stretch.
