Effects of Stress by Robert Sapolsky

If you have time, watch this documentary. It ties in perfectly with what we have discussed during lecture regarding stress. It is about how stress physiologically affects us and Robert Sapolsky, a neuro-biologist, proves it by studying baboons. This study is a great break through because it shows us how structural hierarchy plays a role in our stress. What we mean by this is that stress use to be something that was used to save us, fight or flight. In Western Society though stress is induced by constantly being overwhelmed with tangible items.
