THE LINK BETWEEN CANCER AND UNEXPRESSED ANGER
Cancer is caused by the suppression of toxic negative emotions [primarily anger, hate, resentment and grief]. Suppression of negative emotions increase a person's level of the stress hormone cortisol, which has been found in many studies worldwide to directly suppress immune system functioning. When the immune system is not functioning properly, normal cells mutate into cancer cells which occurs over 6 specific and interrelated phases above. The more one suppresses toxic emotions [such as anger] throughout their life, the more susceptible they are to cancer manifesting within their body.
1. Extreme suppression of anger was the most commonly identified characteristic of 160 breast cancer patients who were given a detailed psychological interview and self-administered questionnaire in a study conducted by the King’s College Hospital in London, as reported by the Journal of Psychosomatic Research. "Present results are based on statistical comparisons between 69 patients found at operation to have breast cancer and a control group comprising the remaining 91 patients with benign breast disease. Our principal finding was a significant association between the diagnosis of breast cancer and a behaviour pattern, persisting throughout adult life, of abnormal release of emotions. This abnormality was, in most cases, extreme suppression of anger and, in patients over 40, extreme suppression of other feelings." [http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/0022399975900628]
2. As reported by the College of Nursing, University of Tennessee: "Extremely low anger scores have been noted in numerous studies of patients with cancer. Such low scores suggest suppression, repression, or restraint of anger. There is evidence to show that suppressed anger can be a precursor to the development of cancer, and also a factor in its progression after diagnosis." [http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11037954]
3. "When I suggest emotional healing to people with cancer, they always misunderstand me. They hear it as emotional support. They think I either just want to comfort them, or show them how to have a more positive attitude. They don’t get that something like forgiveness might be the key to their getting well. I see their eyes glaze over when I go on to say that emotional toxicity is most likely the cause of their cancer, and that forgiveness, if used with appropriate treatments and lifestyle changes that address the physical, is a 'first-line' primary treatment. Their inability to hear this as a strategy for survival, is a measure of how brainwashed we all are into thinking that treatment for cancer must always be harsh, drastic and violent. With our War-on-Cancer mind-set, it's hard to imagine that something so seemingly soft and gentle as forgiveness could be the answer to our problem." [Colin Tipping, Institute of Radical Forgiveness]
4. A major study involving 847 US women diagnosed with invasive breast cancer were studied from 1985-1994 by the California Department of Health Services and National Cancer Institute to see whether emotional expression and a fighting spirit affected cancer survival rates. "Patients who reported low levels of emotional expression in conjunction with low levels of emotional support experienced worse survival than women who reported high levels of both. Although similar risk relations were evident among Blacks, Whites, and women with late stage disease, the risk was more pronounced among women with early stage tumors. These patients had a nearly fourfold risk of dying from breast cancer if they reported low levels of both emotional expression and emotional support when compared with patients with early stage tumors who reported high levels of both."

5. Retired Clinical Professor of Surgery at Yale Medical School, Dr Bernie Siegel: "I have collected 57 extremely well documented so-called cancer miracles. At a certain particular moment in time they decided that the anger and the depression were probably not the best way to go, since they had such little time left. And so they went from that to being loving, caring, no longer angry, no longer depressed, and able to talk to the people they loved. These 57 people had the same pattern. They gave up, totally, their anger, and they gave up, totally, their depression, by specifically a decision to do so. And at that point the tumors started to shrink." [http://berniesiegelmd.com/]
