If Your Stress Levels Are High, Your Risk for Pancreatic Cancer Can Increases As
The newest study has shown that acceleration of pancreatic cancer’s development can happen due to excessive stress. This is caused by the release of fight or flight hormones from the body. In consequence, the usage of Beta Blockers, which is a medication used for the inhibition of those hormones, managed to improve the survival rates of a mouse who suf...
