Scientists have once again made a stunning discovery: stress

diseases. This is not the end of the world, but pleasant in this fact.

A team of specialists from the University of Calgary Medical School
(Canada) has collected reliable information that any person

of this exposure to model your own stress reactions,
broadcasting them further on to other people.
The cells of the central nervous system become victims of this process.

The reality was even more disappointing: changes

The conclusion was unequivocal: the neurocytes of both mice suffered and their
