An eye-opening new film explores the connection between stress and the continuing fall in US life expectancy.'By the time you finish this article, your brain will have changed. Something you read or something that happens while you’re trying to focus on these words will go on to have an impact on your day.If that event happens to be stressful – maybe you are interrupted by loud colleagues or a loved one calls with bad news – it can trigger a series of more stressful events such as choosing something unhealthy to eat or being unintentionally rude to a friend or co-worker.That chain reaction, if repeated, takes a toll on your overall health and wellness. Stress has been shown to be an aggravating factor in, among other conditions, heart disease, diabetes and mental health problems. That might explain why US life expectancy has fallen three years in a row.'

And, BTW, the power elite needs to keep us stressed, so that we are too busy to recognize their hand in our destruction. They won the media. What our people hear and see is what they want.

They are playing us like little kazoos. Morning robo phone calls, spam everywhere, many choices of junk with no quality available. Job insecurity, nuclear war, health(?)care, climate change, militarized police, blow back, homelessness, new tech crap to learn, insane leaders, foreclosure, retirement(?). I am sure it is intentional to keep us off balance and fighting among each other. It makes us more docile workers, willing to settle for crumbs in a bakery.

From the 50s to the late 80s, life on earth was easier for white American males than human life has ever been, and even then, our capitalist society had me stressed out. I cannot imaging what it is like for young workers these days.
