Through aggressiveness. Through fear. At the level both of nations and of individuals stress in our lives can be either constructive or destructive. If we push ourselves to achieve fairly and with our own Talent a not at the expense of the other Guy a i think that kind of stress is healthy. If we Are reacting solely to fear and doing this chronically then i think such stress is destructive Why do i qualify the foregoing with the word Quot chronically a let me explain at Massachusetts Institute of technology nutrition researcher or. Robert Lees has advanced a hypothesis regarding a Sticky it is his belief that Quot Sticky platelets Quot in the blood May promote heart disease that blood platelets have become a a Sticky Means they Are More ready to clot. It is often a clot in the coronary artery which is the cause of a heart attack. A Sticky platelets in the blood Are part of the body a response to threat. When we Are aroused by fear or pressure our adrenal glands produce More epinephrine or adrenalin and this increases the ability of our blood to clot in primitive Man this was part of the body a preparation for survival. If wounded the warriors blood would clot faster and he would hopefully survive an injury that otherwise might have caused him to bleed to death. This is a simple Point for us to understand. And today fear or any kind of stress has the same effect. The trouble is the Warrior reacted to stress both through body preparation and physical action. Presumably he weathered the ordeal As does today a athlete for example because the stress does not go on and on perhaps unreached to. But Many of our people Are subject to daily stress which charges them up and then they cannot ease their feelings through action. And if this is chronic they May Well be laying the Way for blood clotting that could Lead to a heart attack. So Don t scare yourself to death with pressures. Adopt the question suggested by some heart researchers a will it be important five years from now a vested suits Are an important look in menswear fashions this fall.
