Ive actually studied A-level Psychology and we've done stress - i got an A :p anywho lol yeah there's apparently different personality types that
are linked to certain illness's. Type C's are unassertive people who supress emotion etc and are more likely to get cancer - which is pretty scary i
thought. There was this study my Nermeroff and Musselman i think where they gave depressed people a sugar pill (telling them it was Prozac) and
because depressed people have something like 40% more sticky platelets in their blood, after telling them they were taking this 'anti-depressant'
their sticky platelet number actually decreased so a lot of whats wrong is purely pyschological...not all but it influences it more than people
