Health Anxiety (hypochondria) is a form of focused anxiety where the individual holds the belief of having a myriad of medical illnesses when they, in reality, do not. It is also the fear of developing an illness. This anxiety can actually fuel physical symptoms - a cycle of believing one has symptoms, leads to physically feeling these symptoms (ex. chest pain, headaches, etc.), which reinforces the belief that something is truly wrong in their bodies. Usually a doctor's reassurance that nothing is medically wrong is ineffective at relieving the individual's anxiety. This research has found that CBT provides a long-term benefit in treating health anxiety. Patients with severe health anxiety were assigned to either a CBT intervention group led by Non-CBT experts that had undergone a two week training course, or to a standard care group that consisted of reassurance from their medical physician. Those in the CBT intervention reported decreased anxiety, depression and increase in social functioning. These results were maintained long-term. Because certain CBT interventions can be taught to other professionals such as nurses and medical doctors, it is possible that, with training, these professionals can help recognize and combat anxiety in a more cost-effective way.

Some studies show almost 50% of the UK population do not know the kinds of food that put then at an increased risk of cancer. With more and more people getting cancer, we need to work together to raise awareness of the causes, and take steps to prevent it from affecting ourselves and our families.
