Faith Middleton Show: A Look At The Effects Of Stress On The Body And Our Emotions
Vigorous studies and research show what super stress does to human health.
Ever since the earliest human ran from T-Rex, we have known stress. In the modern age we don't have T-Rex, we have other worries - mortgages, relationships, aging relatives, dying friends, overly demanding workplaces, or no workplace at all. I'm sure you could add to the list.
The modern age has also brought us the ability, through rigorous studies and research, to know what super stress does to human health.
On this show we talk to two people who understand the effects of stress. We start with one of the leaders in the field, a guest before on our show, Dr. Carolyn Mazure. She is director of women's health research at Yale, where she is Professor of psychiatry and psychology and associate dean for faculty affairs. She wrote a book called, Does Stress Cause Psychiatric Illness?
Also, Thea Singer, author of Stress Less. Singer explores what the new science of stress can tell us about how to turn back the cellular clock.
