Michael Douglas blames stress for cancer
London, Sep 23, Hollywood actor Michael Douglas believes he has cancer because he has had such a stressful year, and has vowed to clean up his act in the future.
The “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” star is currently undergoing eight weeks of radiation and chemotherapy after being diagnosed with a tumour in his throat last month, reports dailystar.co.uk.
“This type of cancer can be brought on by alcohol and tobacco abuse and by a certain type of sexually transmitted reason, but I look at it as stress,” said Douglas.
“I have had a pretty stressful year on a number of fronts, some of which were public and some of which weren’t,” he added.
The 65-year-old star has two children — Dylan, 10 and Carys, seven — with wife Catherine Zeta-Jones.
