From the Paper:

"Stress, even the word alone causes a reaction these days. We now know enough about the many things that stress can do to the body through TV and the Internet that common sense would tell us that stress can definitely kill us. And yet our general lifestyles here in the United States continue on the same path that has brought a dramatic increase in stress related disorders in the past 50 years. We have turned to medical science in hopes that the happy pills will help reduce the stress load and as a result have become the most medicated country in the world (1). Some people are making big changes in their lifestyles and seeing dramatic improvement in their health and well being. The difficult part is in helping the other 95% of the stress sufferers in our country accept the mental and physical shifts necessary to bring about the health giving change in their own lives. The answers to our ever increasing stress epidemic are here we just need to learn to apply them throughout our lifestyles."
