Stress, it seems, is everywhere.
And while it certainly doesn't take a scientist to notice it, scientists across a range of disciplines are asking serious questions about just what all this stress might mean for our health. Students in Amherst College's community-based learning course, Biochemical Principles of Life at the Molecular Level, have brought their own questions to bear on the complex relationship between human health and stress. From the psychological effects of bullying to the anti-inflammatory potential of yoga, the 25 students of this upper-level biochemistry course designed and implemented their own inquires of how stress impacts health.
