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.

      Comments about Stress: Portrait of a Killer DVD:

      Viewing this DVD was enlightening and a cause for
      concern at the same time.

      Realizing that stress could be a killer I purchased several more copies over the next year or so

      I feltTrying to relate the substance of the DVD myself was inadequate to bring the subject matter home to friends and loved ones so I begin handing the DVD out so these people could have the same somewhat alarming experience I had when watching this stress DVD

          This really helps you understand the health consequences of where you are and see yourself in social/work hierarchies.
          I will be using this with my Psychology classes this year.

              Comments about Stress: Portrait of a Killer DVD:

              My son, 20 and a college student, was experiencing difficulty managing the stress of the adult world. He is his toughest critic and his expectations are very high. I had similar struggles when I was his age. The Stress DVD gave me a platform to share the negative consequences of a formerly stressed life.
