Yoga offers antidote to stress

"Tobacco is just one reason behind the increasing number of cancer cases. Stress, strain, tension and trauma are bigger agents of the disease,"

Stress and negative thinking were leading to serious ailments and yoga offered the best antidote that could not only cure but boost productivity and improve quality of life, popular yoga guru Baba Ramdev says.

"Tobacco is just one reason behind the increasing number of cancer cases. Stress, strain, tension and trauma are bigger agents of the disease," said Ramdev, who was recently in Ratlam district to hold a three-day yoga camp.

He said a negative mindset leading to stress was the most dangerous trend the country was facing. He said competition in all the aspects of life had become a source of constant strain, which in turn was resulting in serious ailments like hypertension, obesity and cardiac diseases, besides cancer.

"Annoyance, rage and fear among people are also the result of stress and strain," Ramdev told IANS during a chat here.

Ramdev added that yoga was the best solution for the ailments inflicting a large section of the population. Yoga, he said, boosts productivity, quality and creativity in an individual's life.

Ramdev suggested that yoga should be a compulsory subject in school curricula. He said children should know about its importance and inculcate it in their daily routine right from the childhood.

He also said he was planning to establish a yoga university in the country, which was expected to take a concrete shape in the next two years. "Once the university is established, I plan to open its branches all over the country and the world," he added.
