how your beliefs determine your lifespan!
« on: May 30, 2008, 03:10:57 PM »
Not only do your beliefs affect your health, they also affect how long you live. As an example, please consider the following extract from a report by Daniel E Moerman, PhD and Wayne B Jonas MD:

"It has been shown that non-white Chinese Americans die significantly earlier than normal if they have a combination of disease and birth year which Chinese astrology and medicine consider ill fated. The intensity of the effect was shown to be correlated with the strength of commitment to traditional Chinese culture. These differences in longevity (up to 6% or 7% difference in length of life) are not due to having Chinese genes but to having Chinese ideas, to knowing the world in Chinese ways."

The hidden factors behind this phenomenon are explained on The Nature of Reality Course.
