Stress - Portrait Of A Killer DVD

Scientific discoveries in the field and in the lab prove that stress is not a state of mind, but something measurable and dangerous.

Over the last three decades, Stanford university neurobiologist Robert Sapolsky has been advancing our understanding of stress - how it impacts our bodies and how our social standing can make us more or less susceptible.

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.

Stress helps ensure survival, but for humans the modern world presents a never-ending catalogue of worries that may, in fact, prove fatal.

This National Geographic documentary looks at the impact of stress on the body, including brain shrinkage and DNA damage, and what can be done to prevent it.

Neurobiologist and author Robert Sapolsky hosts this fascinating film that takes viewers inside the laboratory and across the world in search of answers.
