Connecting chronic stress, metabolism, cancer and how Vitamin C can prevent cancer
Here is a recent article connecting chronic stress with LDHA activation and breast cancer (Ref.) Chronic stress increases epinephrine levels and activates β2-adrenergic receptor to in turn induce expression of LDHA and inducing cancer stem-like phenotype. LDH inhibitors can revers that (Ref.). This is one example how Green tea and Vitamin C can reduce chance of cancer as a result of chronic stress.

This reminds me of Ryke Geerd Hamer and the German New Medicine... In some people I was able to track a type of emotional conflict with the development of a certain type of Cáncer. Just like when thinking of cancer as an infectious disease... Sometimes you can connect the dots but not all the time.
Yes, I think stress is one of the major ingredients at the origin of cancer. I came across New-Germanic-Medicine many years ago and spent some time looking at that. In general, I think we have the capability to induce major changes in our body (both negatively and positively) just with our mind, and that has been scientifically demonstrated. But most of the people are not trained to do it - that's why many using this approach alone for serious diseases have failed - so going with Germanic-Medicine-like approaches alone, is highly dangerous for cancer patients. Instead, I think it's a good idea to integrate the use of drugs and supplements with mind (and spirit) -based healing techniques.
I agree... Not many people have developed awareness of their own being and having a good insight is basic to even think of persuing this approach.
