Breast cancer doesn't come back if you can live a life without stress

Breast cancer doesn't come back if you can live a life without stress. A happy woman has a stronger immune system that can beat cancer, even if she has had several episodes of the disease in the past, a new study has discovered. Researchers have discovered a direct link between stress and the immune system. In a study involving 227 women with recently diagnosed breast cancer, around half were taught psychological skills to reduce their stress levels. Those who went through the stress-reducing programme had a 45 per cent reduced risk of recurring breast cancer, even 11 years later. Those who developed breast cancer again were much more likely to survive, say psychologists at the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center.
