March 8, 2012 - While cancer deaths are on a steady decline in Europe, researchers estimate more than a million people will die of cancer in the european union this year. Italian and Swiss researchers studied cancer deaths in the twenty-seven country block. They estimate nearly one-point-three millon people will die of cancer in the EU this year.

Also, hypnosis may be used by some for entertainment, for others, it's a way to change a bad habit. Many people seek out hypnosis to help them lose weight, quit smoking and even improve their golf game.
Hypnosis, also referred to as hypnotherapy or hypnotic suggestion, is a trance-like state in which you have heightened focus, concentration and inner absorption. Under hypnosis, you're more open than usual to suggestions, and this can be used to modify your perceptions, behavior, sensations and emotions. Hypnosis isn't right for everyone, though. You may not be able to enter a state of hypnosis fully enough to make it effective.
