Stress Will Make You Sick, But Not Carcinogens?

What would you do if an industry person told you that tests done on mice which have proven to cause cancer are inconclusive, and that worrying about carcinogens will make you sick, but not the carcinogens themselves? Does this mean we should all do what we can to eat well, excercise and if we still get sick, we should accept that we willed it somehow by worrying too much? Good one, but I of course don't buy it. So, we should just accept that the cancer rate is rising along with other epidemics such as autism--just resign to that fact and don't blame chemical industries for toxins and heavy metals such as mercury in our environment, right?

Something stinks and it's not just the perfume I'm wearing.
