Mind-body medicine in the mainstream media

U.S. News & World Report has an article on a new study that shows that daily stress has an impact on how a woman's immune system responds to the cancer-causing virus HPV, and then an accompanying article featuring a short interview with Anne Harrington, author of The Cure Within, for some perspective on the mind-body connection at work here.

The feeling of stress continues to be just about the only emotional state that we feel okay, culturally, about relating to health issues. And even then it seems we do it at arm's length, continually looking to biology for the "real" reasons something may be physically wrong with us.
