February 2005
Tufts University Health & Nutrition Letter;Feb2005, Vol. 22 Issue 12, p1
Discusses two new studies in 2005 regarding how stress makes a person forgetful and speeds up the aging process. Effect of the protein kinase C enzyme on the brain; Correlation between chronic stress and aging according to Elissa Epel, an assistant professor of psychiatry at the University of California in San Francisco; Importance of learning healthy ways to manage stress.
