Farrah Fawcett Cancer Stress Related Says Ryan O’neal
Though he is no doctor, actor Ryan O’ Neal suspects he may know what caused the cancer that took the life of pop icon Farrah Fawcett.
O’ Neal, who was romantically involved with Farrah from 1979 till 1997, believes that family problems created unhealthy psychological stress that very well could have have contributed to Fawcett contracting cancer.
“There was turmoil during my love affair with Farrah, a lot of it caused by my family and my kids,” O’Neal said in a recent interview with CNN talk show host Piers Morgan. “And I just think that if she had never met us, would she still be alive today? Because nobody knows what causes cancer.”
According to O’ Neal there is no other logical explanation as to why a woman who exercised frequently, didn’t smoke, and didn’t drink could come down with the disease.
“And then we came along. The four of us. And gradually she got weaker. I don’t know.”
While recent studies have indicated a link between various psychological factors and cancer, a direct cause-and-effect relationship has not been proven, according to the National Cancer Institute.
