From the Paper:"Too much stress is not good and constant stress often causes adverse effects. Most individuals are familiar with the adrenaline rush response to an emergency. The heart pulsates, the muscles contract, and the lungs expand; and while this is happening, we are able to use greater than normal strength and speed. This response is the body's way of rescuing itself when confronted with an emergency. We do not have to think about it to make it happen. Whether we are stuck in traffic, about to give a speech in front of a group, or sitting in the waiting room at a doctor's office, the human stress response happens automatically. The difference between the two is that the adrenaline response in an emergency starts and resolves itself quickly. The response to being stuck in traffic may not. The adrenal glands, located above the kidneys, secrete the emergency passes. Then the body returns to its normal function. However, the stress response is more complex and can last longer. "
