False prophecy and cancer

Friday, December 8, 2017

In doing research for a different post, I just now got a big surprise, from this Wikipedia article:

Type A and Type B personality theory

Many years ago, I recognized that individuals I regard as false prophets are unusually prone to die of cancer.  I could provide a long list, but just now there’s no need.  I developed a theory of an “irritable personality,” and supposed such a personality might rise from the same genetic bases as a tendency toward cancer.

From this article, it appears that I was right.  Although it doesn’t give any detailed description of what might constitute a cancer-prone personality,  it sets forth that, at least in some persons, the two are definitely linked.

Final note:  Not all trolls are false prophets, but all false prophets are trolls.
