Stress and Cancer

Posted:

We know stress can affect your health. But now, researchers at Fox Chase Cancer Center have found that daily stress can reduce a woman's ability to fight off HPV, and increase her risk of developing cervical cancer.

HPV, an infection that is sexually transmitted, is not the only thing to blame for cervical cancer. But this study says that by at least learning how and taking steps to control stress, women can increase their ability to fight off HPV and reduce the risk of developing cervical cancer.
