The Mythbusters of Psychology

My favorite quote by the wonderful Harriet Hall, MD:

A positive attitude can stave off cancer."
Not only does the evidence not support this claim, but there is evidence that women who were highly stressed were less likely to develop breast cancer. And attitudes don't prolong survival: even the most optimistic cancer patients lived no longer than the most fatalistic ones.<\blockquote>
