RADIO PROGRAM No. 9 - Your Defense from Contagion
HOST: Every day we hear and see vivid descriptions of diseases. There isn't much doubt that this gives rise to fear. And there are many who feel that fear itself is an enemy, opening the door to contagion. Some time ago Dr. J.A.M. Meerloo made this statement in The New Leader:
"One of the first symptoms of fear and worry about epidemics is the lowering of man's natural resistance to disease." He goes on, "One can cite many examples to show how mental and physical defense mechanisms in our organism are constantly influenced by our fearful anticipations."
Dr. Meerloo emphasized that we must look beyond the virus as a cause, to the fear that weakens our resistance. But the big question still remains, How can we avoid being afraid if there's an epidemic?
