Got Stress? Maybe No Cancer

According to a new study -- and just about opposite every other study -- job stress has no longer been found to contribute to cancer.  As reports, even though 90% of cancers have been linked to environment and lifestyle, a recent Finnish analysis found that, though "stress has been linked with a body response that causes extra stress hormones," these hormones don't trigger and maintain chronic inflammation, as originally thought. Inflammation has been shown to play a part in cancer.

Another study done in London over 20 years had the same results. Now, if you work the night shift, the situation might be a little different.  Studies done last year show that women who work overnight have a higher risk of breast cancer, and men, prostate cancer.

The Finnish study used people who felt they had high demands, and low control, placed on them. Couldn't we all relate?
