If we know that radiation causes cancer why would you say that it's a spiritual cause? Even though yes, most people may agree that God can sicken someone at any moment.

walk into a cancer ward where little kids are undergoing treatment and why don't you ask their Parents if their little child somehow caused their illness 'spiritually'
I think security would be called and you would be escorted out very quickly or punched out by one of the Parents.

As some of you know, I'm a pretty spiritual guy.
I recently was reading about a spiritualist who believes all non-contagious illnesses start on a spiritual level, and then if the spiritual cause isn't resolved, it manifests physically with something like cancer or another health problem.
I partially believe that, simply because even if you're not spiritual you must acknowledge that stress and pressure can definitely do a number on your body, making certain cancers and heart problems more prevalent.
My question to this is, however, what about children who are born and get cancer? How, by this belief, are they mature enough to have spiritual imbalances or issues large enough on a spiritual level to give them cancer?
I consider myself pretty logical, and I have a pretty open mind, I figured I'd just ask and see what your opinion was on that belief.
