Been thinking on this one for a bit. Cancer kills and when people find out they have it,they get demoralized and then for some reason continue to go down hill, as if since they know about it, they are going to let it win! But what if there was a placebo effect..? What if those who have choose to accept get to break free of its killing effects? What if you didn't believe in it, or just told yourself it has been with me this long so if it kills me, it kills itself! What would want to kill u that would kill itself? It may be bullshit, but it mat carry some truth with it. Like saying that the planet is blue, but what if it was actually red instead and we only grew up believing it was blue! I think this whole demoralizing process on human minds is the real problem with what is killing people these days!!!!

The power of thought is pretty amazing I believe. People have been misdiagnosed thinking they have cancer when they're in fact healthy. I wonder how detrimental that is to your health.

This reminds me of a story my boss likes to mention.

While on a business trip to China visiting our suppliers he went to a factory and the owner started to introduce his staff.

Last remained his 12 year old child and told my boss ; "this is my daughter and she has cancer". Shaking her hand, my boss got preoccupied and lost in speech. As he tried to put some words in place the Chinese chap said ; "no it's ok, she will be ok, the more we talk about it to many people, the more the positive energy"

My boss mentioned this again recently. He's a Dan Brown fan and is reading his latest novel "Inferno". He tried to say that there's a theory of mass energy that does wonders. Don't know much more, but it makes me curious.
