Dr Kzhyshkowska, of the Blood Transfusion and Clinical Immunology Institute, Mannheim Medical Faculty, was addressing a congress on links between cancer tumours and 'microenvironments'.
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.

'The information field speculates on peoples psyche and does it successfully because most of us cannot filter waste information.'
