NPR (9/22, Neighmond) reports in a radio report and in its “Shots” blog that chronic stress, either from major events or even minor issues such as fretting while stuck in traffic, can be “deadly,” citing a study that followed 1,293 men for years. The study, which is scheduled for publication in the journal Experimental Gerontology, found that the “most stressed-out people have the highest risk of premature death.”

The blog post highlights a couple of solutions for “chronically upset worriers,” pointing out that exercise and meditation could help alleviate stress.
