Great piece written by a breast cancer survivor that discusses how stress can manifest itself physically especially in women. (Source: New York Times) The article was apparently inspired by a sign she saw that read "Stress is related to 99 percent of all illness."
Is this true? Do you think that most modern maladies (one example used here is ovarian cancer) can be attributed to stress? Or do you think that women (as she states) tend to place "the locus of illness in their heads rather than their bodies?"
