Description: Few Westernized humans are likely to die of scarlet fever, malaria or malnutrition. Instead, we live well enough and long enough to succumb to the diseases of slow degeneration. It is increasingly recognized that a large percentage of such diseases can be caused by or worsened by stress. This lecture approaches the subject of stress and health from two very different perspectives.
