Summary

The World Health Organisation has called stress the `health epidemic of the 21st century', and it has been blamed for contributing to illnesses such as diabetes, dementia and types of cancer. Here, Fiona Phillips explores scientific research into stress and demonstrates a number of techniques designed to decrease common factors. She also investigates whether it is inherently a bad thing, joining a number of volunteers who put themselves into a number of high-stress situations to truly understand its meaning and how people could use it to their advantage.
