Small minds and small brains.
It is not just conjecture anymore.

Stress Can Literally Shrink Your Brain, Study Finds

MINNEAPOLIS — Stressed and want a good reason to decompress? Maintaining a healthy blood pressure is a given, but now you have yet another reason to do what it takes to relax. A recent study finds chilling out isn’t just an indulgence: according to researchers, stress not only impairs memory, but actually decreases brain size.

The study, published in the journal Neurology, comes after researchers studied 2,231 middle-aged participants in the famous Framingham Heart Study. In addition to finding a correlation between high levels of the stress hormone cortisol and memory impairment, the researchers also found via MRI scans that those with heightened cortisol had decreased brain volume.

“In our quest to understand cognitive aging, one of the factors attracting significant interest and concern is the increasing stress of modern life,” says the study’s senior author Dr. Sudha Seshadri, in a news release. “One of the things we know in animals is that stress can lead to cognitive decline. In this study, higher morning cortisol levels in a large sample of people were associated with worse brain structure and cognition.”

Seshadri, a professor of neurology at UT Health San Antonio and founding director of the university’s Glenn Biggs Institute for Alzheimer’s and Neurodegenerative Diseases, says the fast pace of modern life seems to frequently trigger our flight-or-fight response.

“When we are afraid, when we are threatened in any way, our cortisol levels go up,” she says. “This study adds to the prevailing wisdom that it’s never too early to be mindful of reducing stress.”

In a separate release, another of the study’s authors, Harvard Medical School’s Dr. Justin Echouffo-Tcheugui, added that their research detected memory impairment and brain shrinkage well before symptoms started to show.

“…so it’s important for people to find ways to reduce stress, such as getting enough sleep, engaging in moderate exercise, incorporating relaxation techniques into their daily lives, or asking their doctor about their cortisol levels and taking a cortisol-reducing medication if needed,” he says. “It’s important for physicians to counsel all people with higher cortisol levels.”

The researchers also noted that there were some limits to their study: cortisol levels were only measured once and the majority of the participants were middle-aged and of European ancestry. Accordingly, there is still more to investigate about long-term exposure to cortisol and its effects on a broader range of people.


Keep your head down and admire the shot.


COVFEFE!!

When you combine that with democrats aren't as happy as Republicans, it all makes sense.

So we can now say OAC is stress challenged.

Funny/not funny, but the early deaths, suicide rates, opiate addictions and deaths from over-doses, prescription drug over-prescription, etc., are higher in the red states, particularly in the south.

Tennessee among them (at least for pain killer addictions, and I'd guess the rest as well).

It seems those mostly non-Ds are having some stress in their lives.

Hey, with their long R dominance in their governors' offices and majorities in their legislatures, when are they finally going to turn around their state economies? Does that take 30 years, and if so, isn't that up by now? Any signs of a turnaround in that region?

A Republican Trumper forever I know explained how Republican logic would connect the dots here.
Trump used to be a registered Democrat and Trump organization contributed to Democrat candidates and PACs.
Stress caused his brain to shrink and there you go,

ANOTHER REPUBLICAN


Trump speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in 2015
Trump registered as a Republican in Manhattan in 1987 and since that time has changed his party affiliation five times. In 1999, Trump changed his party affiliation to the Independence Party of New York. In August 2001, Trump changed his party affiliation to Democratic. In September 2009, Trump changed his party affiliation back to the Republican Party. In December 2011, Trump changed to "no party affiliation" (independent). In April 2012, Trump again returned to the Republican Party.[23]

In a 2004 interview, Trump told CNN's Wolf Blitzer: "In many cases, I probably identify more as Democrat," explaining: "It just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats than the Republicans. Now, it shouldn't be that way. But if you go back, I mean it just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats [...] But certainly we had some very good economies under Democrats, as well as Republicans. But we've had some pretty bad disaster under the Republicans."

Well they say that time loves a hero
But only time will tell
If he's real he's a legend from heaven
If he ain't he was sent here from hell

Hear me well
Seeing ain't always believing
Just make sure it's the truth that you're seeing
Eyes sometimes lie, eyes sometimes lie
They can be real deceiving


-- Little Feat

With W, the conservatives pulled the 'no true Scotsman' gambit. They had lauded him as literally sent from God to serve in a critical time, and definitely a conservative. Then when it all turned to sh!t, they said, well, he was never a conservative.

This time, they really cannot use that trick. What he was, was a bargain with the Devil for them.
