ANSWER: varun, Thank you for your question.

Questions about cancer should be asked of medical experts (doctors). There are several doctors here at AllExperts.

Questions about mindfulness should be asked of mindfulness experts. There may be some here at AllExperts.

I can only answer questions about transcending, which is a technique sometimes called samadhi which brings a unique state of restful alertness that can gradually eliminate all our stored (accumulated) internal stresses.

Transcending is not distributed as a method for curing or avoiding any disease.

Answer
varun,

If you continue to think in black/white terms, you will never fit in with life. You will find yourself constantly frustrated and unhappy. Why live this way?

There are no absolute answers. Coffee is both good and bad, depending on many factors. Same for various kinds of meditation.

You want to know "the truth"? There is not one truth. Every person has their own truths that fit various states and situations in their life.

If you want to practice something, don't waste your time wondering things that cannot be answered. No one knows how meditation affects cancer, if at all.

Hope this helps. You seem very confused.
