There is an article on SOTT that talks about some very interesting claims by a Russian scientist, professor Julia Kzhyshkowska. She said the following during a conference:
A factor in causing cancer is 'unrecognised chronic stress', participants were told. This can be the result of an uncontrolled flow of information, quite often negative, which faces people in the modern world on a daily basis.
People don't think they need to protect themselves from it as they don't see it as a threat, yet it should be seen as a factor in causing cancer alongside genetic predisposition, the effect of pathogenic organisms (viruses and bacteria) and environmental aspects.
'In fact, the influence of the information field is more dangerous than ecological factors,' said Dr Kzhyshkowska. 'We can measure and control ecological factors - but we don't know what to do with mountains of excess information that scares and disturbs us- and worries us with whatever extra possibilities it brings along.
'The information field speculates on peoples psyche and does it successfully because most of us cannot filter waste information.'
People 'don't understand how harmful it is to health.
'A person who spends a lot of time online or in front of a TV set doesn't think that a gigantic amount of information which is totally useless for that particular person still remains in his subconscious. The brain's subcortical tries to process volumes of this information but the body can't cope with it.
'It makes people act chaotically, bringing dividends to whoever first explains what is important and profitable.
'Information flows negatively influence the nervous system and through that directly impacts on people's immune system, weakening it.
'The immune and nervous systems are quite similar in structure. They create networks that actively work with each other - and, simply put, these systems 'decide' if a person gets cancer. If we work to help co-operation between the immune and nervous systems, we will significantly increase the chances for a long and healthy life.'
