The Disease Scoreboard: Genes-1, Stress-99
A major revision in the life sciences illuminates the formerly hidden connection between mind and body. The “new” biology defines how our thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs create our body’s conditions, ranging from health to disease. Since only 1% of dis-ease is due to genetic defects, the remaining 99% is directly attributable to the environment and our nervous system’s perception of the environment.
This presentation focuses on the biomechanics of stress, recognized to be the primary source of disease and responsible for up to 90% of all doctor office visits. The discussion includes the mechanism by which stress promotes dysfunction and premature aging through its impact on telomeres, the body’s longevity mechanism. Bruce’s profoundly hopeful synthesis of leading-edge research in cell biology can enhance your professional practice and, as importantly, your personal life.
