Video lecture: the biology of belief, and why stress kills and laughter heals

This is a fascinating lecture by Dr Bruce Lipton on the biology of belief.
“Our beliefs are altering our biology at all times, in every way.”

“How I see things is affecting who I am. Beliefs act as a filter between your environment and your biology.”
