The Most Dangerous Word in The World

brain

I’ve always suspected that we have a lot more going on in our brains than the doctors would have us believe, and it now seems that’s absolutely the case. Recent advances in neuroscience and brain imaging are apparently throwing up a huge amount of new information, which is giving researchers a whole new view on the way we live and interact with others.

A new post from Psychology Today, entitled The Most Dangerous Word In The World, is a great example of the kind of thing they’re discovering about our conscious activity. Apparently if you place someone into an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scanner and beam the word – NO – to them for less than a second, it stimulates the immediate release of dozens of stress producing hormones and neurotransmitters.

Think about that for a minute.

The article goes on to describe just how damaging negativity can be to a personality, and how it can literally lead to ill-health and worse. It’s an amazing article and definitely worth a read. From now on, I’m absolutely going to try and combat the constant barrage of negative thoughts and try and stay more positive. It looks like it pays huge dividends in many different ways!
