Under Pressure: The Search for a Stress Vaccine

Posted because I want to think about this more at length later:

Chronic stress, as biology professor Robert Sapolsky will tell you, is not good for us. It harms our brains, weakens our immune systems and generally makes us difficult to live with. So Sapolsky aims to save us from ourselves. He plans to develop a vaccine-like treatment that will reduce the unhealthy effects of long-term tension.
