Stress Cancer

September 16 2005

To such conclusions scientists have come as a result of the study, which was held in Copenhagen in 18 years, involving over 6500 women. At the very beginning of the study the women were asked what level of stress they experience every day. Were identified such stress symptoms as tension, nervousness, irritability, restlessness or insomnia. After 18 years, 251 women developed breast cancer. Naja Rod Nielsen, National Institute of Health in Copenhagen and his colleagues, who conducted the study reported that women who reported high levels of stress in their lives, the risk of breast cancer was 40% less than those who spoke about low stress, writes The Guardian. The greater the stress experienced by women in their lives, the less she had a chance of getting cancer, the researchers reported. Researchers have since explained his discovery: the prolonged stress affects the blood levels of the hormone estrogen, and this may influence the development of cancer in the body. High estrogen levels associated with a higher risk of breast cancer. But scientists warn that this theory has not yet been adequately tested in practice. Was not measured the exact level of stress among women who participated in the study. The head of the organization "A breakthrough in the treatment of breast cancer by Sarah Rawlings said that measure the effect of stress on the development of breast cancer is very difficult, as well as greatly reducing the stress factor from other factors of our lives. "Based on this study is too early to draw definite conclusions. Meanwhile, it is very important to maintain a healthy, balanced lifestyle: we know that people experiencing high levels of stress can be harmful to your health" - said the head of the organization "A breakthrough in the treatment of breast cancer Sarah Rawlings, said KM.RU.
