Dr. Jeffrey Long is a radiation oncologist in Kentucky. He is the founder of the Near-Death Experience Research Foundation. Dr. Long says studying near-death experiences has made him a better cancer. The result of all of his research is that he is now convinced without doubt that there is life after death.
Dr. Long’s book, Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences, contains accounts of his research on more than 5,000 near-death experiences that has led him to the conclusion that life after death is a reality.
Dr. Long writes,
Thirty-seven years ago I was an oncologist resident, learning about how best to treat cancer using radiation. These were the pre-internet days, so I did my research in the library. One day, I was flipping through a large volume of the Journal of the American Medical Association when I came across an article describing near-death experiences. No two NDEs are the same. But as I studied thousands of them, I saw a consistent pattern of events emerging in a predictable order. About 45% of people who have an NDE report an out-of-body experience. When this happens, their consciousness separates from their physical body, usually hovering above the body. The person can see and hear what’s happening around them, which usually includes frantic attempts to revive them. One woman even reported a doctor throwing a tool on the floor when he picked up the wrong one—something the doctor later confirmed.___________
