The link between fear and cancer

Postby lizbutler » Mon Jan 08, 2018 1:00 pm

I believe the stress of incompletely processed emotions has a large role to play in illness, including cancer. This interesting paper published by the Violet Cancer Institute supports this idea with an exploration of the relationship between chronic fear and cancer.

Fear is a chain reaction in the brain that happens when one encounters a potentially harmful stimulus. The amygdala is the part of the brain that receives information from many parts of the brain and interprets this information to generate the emotion of fear. When the amygdala generates a fear emotion, it sends impulses the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus then sends impulses to many different parts of the body to trigger a fight‐or‐flight response. Fear hormones are secreted by the adrenal gland. The effect of adrenaline (epinephrine) is increasing heart rate, hypocapnia and decreases blood flow to the brain. The effect of cortisol is increasing blood glucose levels by converting stored glycogen and fats into blood sugar. It also suppresses the immune system and causes inflammation. The prime cause of cancer is caused by the increass of the amounts of ROS in healthy cells. ROS stands for Reactive Oxygen Species which is a more technical term for 'free radicals'.


The aim of this review is to show the effect of chronic fear on the cause of cancer in humans by reviewing related clinical studies and biochemistry of fear and cancer. The role of fear, adrenaline and cortisol in causing the hypoxia in tissues is mentioned in this article.
