Nearly 10 years ago, I first wrote about the impact of stress and its potential connection to cancer. What I wrote back then still holds true — in today’s fast-paced world, it’s hard not to find something to be stressed about.

Individually, we all have different triggers for stress, different ways of managing or coping with stress, and different reactions and effects resulting from stress. There are too many causes for stress to describe, however they can be caused by internal factors such as emotions or health, or external causes such as your family or career.
