The Power(lessness) of Belief

  (01 June 08)
  by Greg Spearritt

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Melbourne scientists at a cancer conference in Chicago have presented evidence showing that a positive attitude and a ‘fighting spirit’ have no influence at all on cancer survival rates (though they may improve quality of life).

 

This is supported by other research, but it’s clearly still counter to common wisdom.

 

In our society we have a powerful belief in the power of belief. Is this a vestige of magical thinking: a woolly-headed, pseudo-scientific ‘new age’ conviction about the power of the brain?
