According to Dr. Isaac Eliaz, a medical doctor and mind-body expert, regularly practicing meditation is an effective way to reduce the risk of developing cancer. Meditating on a regular basis is one of the easiest and most natural ways to protect against developing cancer. Regularly practicing meditation helps to repair a part of DNA structure called telomeres, which becomes shortened with age, chronic stress, and poor health. Regular meditation improves the ability to handle stressful situations and promotes psychological stability, causing increased DNA activity in the corresponding zone that protects the ends of telomeres from weakening and shortening. As a result, this reduces the risk of developing cancer and other health-related issues. Regular meditation further enhances this cancer prevention process.
