Portrait of a Killer [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
John Heminway and National Geographic
From baboon troops on the plains of Africa, to neuroscience labs at Stanford University, scientists are revealing just how lethal stress can be. Research reveals that the impact of stress can be found deep within us, shrinking our brains, adding fat to our bellies, even unraveling our chromosomes.
Yet 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 discovers in the field and in the lab prove that stress is not a state of mind, but something measurable and dangerous.
