Was Abraham Lincoln dying of cancer when he was killed? National Geographic is on the front lines as scientists attempt to solve a genetic mystery—using a piece of fabric stained with the president's blood to run DNA analysis.


The final year of Lincoln's life seemed to age him a decade, and he had lost an alarming amount of weight. Even today, his strange body shape, unusual height and long limbs have led to speculation that he harbored some hidden medical problem.

But was he really a simple frontiersman or a brilliant strategist who manipulated his public image, using newspapers, photography, and even folksy imagery to win over voters?

Stress: Portrait of a Killer DVD
(Based on 5 reviews)
Category: DVDs/Science and Space

Over the last three decades, science has been advancing our understanding of stress—how it impacts our bodies and how our social standing can make us more or less susceptible. From baboon troops on the plains of Africa, to neuroscience labs at Stanford University, scientists are revealing just how lethal stress can be. Research tells us that the impact of stress can be found deep within us, shrinking our brains, adding fat to our bellies, even unraveling our chromosomes. Understanding how stress works can help us figure out ways to combat it and how to live a life free of the tyranny of this contemporary plague. In Stress: Portrait of a Killer, scientific discoveries in the field and in the lab prove that stress is not just a state of mind, but something measurable and dangerous.
