Unhealthy diet, obesity and alcohol consumption can promote cancer.

How does chronic stress affect health?

Body

and

soul

inevitably belong together, as physicians assumed in ancient times.

The discovery of

cortisol

in 1950 in connection with

stress reactions

and their direct influence on bodily processes gave physicians a better understanding of how the human mind and its condition affects the body.

"A healthy lifestyle could prevent 40 percent of all cancers," says Professor Renate Oberhoffer-Fritz, Dean and Ordinaria at the Chair of Preventive Paediatrics, Faculty of Sports and Health Sciences at the Technical University of Munich.

Conversely, this means that an

unhealthy lifestyle can promote cancer

.

The human body reacts to stress not only by releasing

adrenaline

,

noradrenaline

and

cortisol

, but also by activating or inhibiting a large number of other hormones, cytokines and other signaling molecules, as described in the journal "Primary and Hospital Care".

In the long term, permanent stress can lead to biological damage to cells.

Stress hormones

impair the function of the immune cells, which

promotes

inflammatory processes.

Stress promotes chronic inflammation and cancer

Chronic stress

promotes inflammatory reactions in the body.

The formation of

cancer cells

is promoted or stimulated by cortisol, and there are now reliable findings from studies.

Psychosocial stress can lead to chronic inflammation due to the sustained activation of the immune system and thus have a carcinogenic effect, i.e. cause cancer.
