    Stress is a programmed response as a means of control and has been part of human nature ever since man has populated the earth. Consider Moses telling God to kill him so that he will be relieved of the frustration of trying to lead God's people, or of Job, asking God to take his life so that he would not have so suffer as much. Suffering is the First Noble Truth. Stress is only a modern term for it.

    no i don't think it is. i think laziness is the disease of the 21st century if anything. i believe that laziness causes selfishness, greed and in some cases coruption. we want more but no matter how fast technology grows, we still want things easier. we watch our governments do some really unethical things and other then complain about it, we sit around in our secure little worlds and as long as things are ok for us personaly , we don't give it much thought.

    Stress can contribute to a number of diseases including heart disease, cancer, arthritis, etc.  I believe it's impact if often overlooked.

    Stress is a part of everyday life, how it affects health is more of a matter of how it's dealt with. I think how stressed out a person is depends on the person and not necessarily the situation. Some people will panic if they lose their job, while others would remain calm after losing all their assets.
    Stress is not a disease, not having stress would be though.
