HERE'S TO YOUR HEALTH can cause cancer reoccurrence pressure work settings with no end in sight. That kind of stress sends your body into a constant state of hormone production, which may cause existing tumors to grow and spread. A new study out of Tel Aviv University in Israel has ....................... A6"wi-Ak'ER ..................... shown scientifically that psy- chological and physiological stress prior to, during and af- ter surgery has a biological impact that impairs immune system functioning. This im- pairment bears down on dis- ease progression, especially at the critical point during surgery when a tumor is be- ing removed. Apparently psychological fear may be no less impor- tant than real physiological tissue damage in suppressing immune competence. Doc- tors have assumed that dur- ing surgery the immune sys- tem is weakened due to tis- sue damage and the body's responses to it. However, the Tel Aviv study concludes that a weak immune system is one of the major factors that promote cancer metas- tases after an operation. There may be a short win- dow of opportunity, about a week after surgery, when the immune system needs to be functioning maximally in or- der kill the tiny remaining bits of tumor tissue that are scattered around the body. ff this is the case, then boost- ing the immune system starting a day or two before surgery, during surgery and after surgery, may be able to provide enough of an inter- vention to extend people's lives and potentially in- crease their chances for long-term survival. Merely perceiving your- self as stressed can have negative biological effects. And feeling optimistic and happy can play a role in de- fending against cancer. For some, work is stressful; for others, it keeps them going. In one ovarian cancer study, patients with higher levels of social support had lower levels of tumor-fueling hor- mones. On the other hand, many scientists believe there is ab- solutely no connection be- tween stress and cancer. Although it is known that stress is connected to heart disease, the link between stress and cancer is less un- derstood. The question of what triggers cancer is tough to tackle because the disease takes a long time to develop and is never caused by only one thing. While stress may make existing cancers worse, not all stress is bad. Life's everyday annoy- ances such as a crowded highway or a deadline are a pain but not a cancer risk. Acute stress is mostly healthy and is thought to help your immune system fight off infection and dis- ease. The troublesome stress is chronic stress, such as un- happy relationships or high- Regardless, there are many other reasons to reduce stress in your life. So, what- ever your inclination is about stress and cancer, you will be doing yourself and your body a big service by decreasing stress in your life. You can't control genet- ics, but you can change how you respond to stress. Slow down, stay calm, sleep well, eat healthy, exer- cise a lot, make friends, have fun and laugh every day. You will increase your quality of life and health, and maybe, just maybe, keep cancer away.
