only if it matters to u, this is the power of the mind wich animals dont
have, if u are happy and dont give a shit and u have nice cool hobies and u
work out and u strong and can beat your boss if u feel like, u happy, if
u care waht other people thinks no shit u stressed
this video sort of is telling us to kill all the corporate assholes and
jerks who give stress to all their workers lol
in america ppl are stressed partly cuz they work more than they want, in
conditions they dont like, and get paid less than their worth. another
thing which is gonna stress ppl out is environmental destruction resulting
in declining food productions and clean water supplies, not to mention
i think the main reasons why a lot of people choose not to work is not
because they are lazy or that they LIKE welfare but because they don’t want
a) bosses to have control over them and b) customers to have control over
them. for me at least thats the worst thing about work. having to let
things slide all the time because you dont want to lose your job when you
actually just want to tell the boss or the customer to shove it is very
this theory is horse shit.
Too much feelgood in this docu IMHO.
Watch, (it is fascinating!) then Google “stress reduction exercises” Have a
nice day! :-)
Very insightful. This will influence how I do certain things. The only
things I question are that I see just as many stressed people at the top of
the hierarchy as I do at the bottom. The person’s attitude plays a role as
well, one independent of the concept of rank. Also, the alpha males may
have just died because they ate more of the infected meat, since they get
Do Yourself a Favor and Watch Stress: Portrait of a Killer (with Stanford
Biologist Robert Sapolsky)
Your position in the organization has a huge impact on your stress levels,
which directly affects your health!

Hyak hyak hyak :D
Intelligence comes at a price. The human species, despite its talent for
solving problems, has managed over the millennia to turn one of its most
basic survival mechanisms–the stress response–against itself.
“Essentially,” says Stanford University neurobiologist Robert Sapolsky,
“we’ve evolved to be smart enough to make ourselves sick.”
Amazing video, must watch.
A couple of conclusions of mine – hierarchical society/job environment
where one has little control or low status is damaging to the health of
that person, his/her future children and society as a whole.
Eliminate psychopaths/a-males and their system or push them out of society
and that would heal people and make society thrive!
This study should point in the direction of how to motivate a stress maker
into a more acceptable square(attitude arrangement) of perception in
society. What is ironic is that a complete documentary ends with just two
words “Can We?”
Can’t tell if running next to lion to protect young or because retarded?
Maybe this is part of why the Scandinavian countries often are at the top
of happiness-scales :)
How status in group hierarchy effects stress and that can manifest as
multitude of negative physiological effects. ..

OF THE EFFECTS OF STRESS
Nobody involved in this documentary thought that maybe portraying stress as
such an imminent, terrifying threat wouldn’t just stress people out even
He is absolutely correct, stress doesn’t just deteriorate telomeres, and
shrinks the brain, it does more than that, it wakes up also dormant
diseases. But the problem is; the susceptibility to stress vary from one
person to another, some people are cool nothing bothers them, some other
people are very easily to get stressed. I believe genes and heredity play a
major role in this matter.
