The Stress Code

As individuals, we are all impacted by stress – but stress is also having devastating effects on the global economy through reduced productivity as well as the immense burden it places on healthcare systems.

Decades of research reliably show that chronic stress severely compromises our physical and mental health, however it has recently emerged that it can also compromise our genetic integrity by destabilising our DNA. Not only does this promote many of the diseases that society is currently grappling with, it can potentially impact on future generations.
