Stress is the curse of modern living-but is it actually so new? Whether it's the panic that sets in before public speaking or the butterflies brought on by sitting down in a dentist's chair, everyone has experienced the age-old fight-or-flight response that once helped humankind evade predators. In this classic program from the Scientific American Frontiers series, host Alan Alda meets researchers who are exploring the long-term ill effects of stress on health and healing and how relaxation can help lessen the damage.
