Social Media Medicine Expert Dr. Veronica Anderson Publishes New Article Are You Your Worse Cancer-Causing Agent?

Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, a weekly resource for wellness of mind, body and spirit, offers her insight about the proven connection of the occurrence of cancer with those that have predominantly negative thought patterns or stress-filled lives.

NEW YORK, NY – December 28, 2011Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of health and wellness web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, recently published an article on her website, that provides insight into the interesting and proven concept that a person’s emotional outlook has a significant amount of impact on their likelihood to develop cancer. The article, titled “Are You Your Worse Cancer-Causing Agent?” discusses ways that medical practitioners and their patients can help to avoid further risk of cancer by prescribing and subscribing to healthy, non medically-invasive healing and preventive techniques.

Dr. Anderson writes, “Since it has been shown scientifically that there is a very strong brain-body connection between negative thinking and the decline of overall health, I believe it is imperative that as health professionals we owe it to our patients to shed light on this potential death sentence.  What’s stopping medical practitioners from educating each and every cancer patient with the potential worsening of their condition if they do not hold the right attitude throughout their ordeal?”

“Though it is a cruel sentiment to suggest that when people have cancer they may very well have contributed to it by virtue of their own attitude – what is wrong with saying the truth?  Society is quick to point out when someone is smoking a cigarette, aren’t they?  And who doesn’t sound out loud and clear how the perils of walking unprotected through a radiation-filled X-ray machine are just about the worse thing you can do for you or your unborn baby?

So my question is this:  If we can unabashedly talk about the things that people eat that are cancer-causing, and the environment in which they can be exposed that are cancer-causing – shouldn’t we also be addressing the attitudes they may be holding that are cancer-causing?” says Dr. Anderson.

Wellness for the Real World features information on developing a healthy and fit mind, body and spirit in today’s dynamic society. Dr. Anderson adds her easily understandable, fun-infused voice to the broad-audience discussion on today’s most popular medicines, alternative treatments, health policies and opinions of wellness – so that her listeners can benefit from truly vigorous life in the real world today.
