Why Love Matters?

Every body knows that CANCER is a deadly disease. E.g. Pancreatic Cancer is the deadliest diseases with a survival rate of only about 4%. Almost in all the cases it is not noticed till the final stage. If we look at the causes, apart from the genetic factors (that is minimum), majority cases appear to be because of OBESITY and SMOKING. Genetic factor is not in our hands, but control on high fat diet and smoking habit (over 30% linked to this). Not to mention the life of passive smokers. Another major contributor it seems is POLLUTION (air, water, food). I think there is a lot of room here to bring changes if there is a WILL at an individual level and at a government level.
There are five important points one needs to observe, I believe, when we are dealing with a Cancer patient:
1. Life is nothing but a project (where there is a beginning there will be an end). So This is not in our control.
2. Desire to live – certainly needed as it will raise the will power (or vital force).
3. LOVE & AFFECTION – from the immediate members of the family, friends, caretaker, physicians, nurses etc. 
4. Food and nutrition – good nutritious food is necessary. I do not think in any where in the world people would deny this especially for a cancer patient. However, if the patient is malnourished then they are more prone to infections which in turn could lead to liver, stomach, cervix cancers etc.
5. Medication – this is the physicians job to find out the best available treatment for the patient.
If we carefully observe the above five points, it is very obvious that FACTOR THREE is the major contributing factor (while at the same time controlling the causation factors like high fat diet, smoking, passive-smoking, alcohol, infections, pollution in general etc.) for speedy recovery and all the medication to help the patient out.
Factor three is the major contributing factor for a cancer patient to survive as it will strengthen the 'desire to live' which in turn will boost the vital force which in turn again fight with the internal enemy and the end result will be the high survival rate.
Therefore, the message that I would like to share with you all is bring AWARENESS and GIVE LOTS OF LOVE AND AFFECTION and SAVE A LIFE.
