Overview

Everyone is susceptible to pressures of modern living, and in this release from National Geographic filmmakers attempt to gain a greater understanding of how our bodies respond to this contemporary plague while revealing why stress is much more than a simple state of mind. Just how deep does the impact of stress really hit us? This is the question posed by university researchers as they travel from the plains of Africa to neuroscience labs at Stanford University on a mission to uncover the physical tools that can result from serious mental strain. Perhaps by understanding how stress works, we can finally discover the key to combating it while living longer, more enjoyable lives.

This gives you extensive information regarding the effects of stress on the body.

When people think of survival of the fittest in dealing with stress, they don't think about the kindest, most team oriented being the survivors. This research shows a long term outcome that surprised even the researchers. I like the study because it was conducted in a void where the outcomes could not be faked. The implications of this research are far reaching in a culture that values competition more than cooperation.
