Stress is commonly thought to increase susceptibility to disease, but a new study in Brain, Behavior, and Immunity finds short-term stress can actually boost the immune system and help reduce the number of skin cancer tumors in mice.
...Previous studies... have shown that acute stress can help fight infection and enhance immune function. But this latest paper... is the first to demonstrate its effects on cancer.

I think that study is clutching at straws a bit, stress is not good for you, it may boost the immune system in the short term.
But that is over using your immune system, so when it really needs to work it may not have enough steam left.
The fact is they already know what causes cancer, they already know how to cure cancer.
But they don't want to cure it, they want to drag it on for years with expensive useless treatments to make profits.
Imagine the profits lost if they cured all cancers in the next year?
I would rather eat out of a bin and live in the gutter than make money off the backs of dead people.
