How Cheating or Lying Weakens Your Immune System

 Cheating, Immune System, Lying
We all lie, but some people have the habit of chronic lying and spreading gossips and false information. Habitually telling lies or concealing the truth is detrimental to one's health.

Studies throughout the years have shown that lying and cheating weaken the immune system and may even cause cancer.

Deceiving ourselves to believe in our falsehoods can lead to anxiety and will make us feel sicker. Concealing the truth will lead a whole cocktail of hormones out of control. Levels of cortisol, norepinephrine, and dopamine will go out of hand when someone is lying or cheating.

For example, the increased production of cortisol(stress hormone) when lying can induce feelings of anxiety, guilt and according to recent studies, may cause diabetes. Abnormal levels of norepinephrine, on the other hand, can cause an irregular heartbeat rate and may cause high blood pressure.

These facts will make us more aware of why we should avoid lying. Other than these health risks our critical thinking skills and judgments are impaired by constantly lying. The video above shows what chronic lying does to our brain.
