This is a MAJOR study that I believe Big Pharma corporations have systematically censored, suppressed, and buried for a very special reason I’ll tell you about in a moment.
I call it The Censored One.
It’s actually part of a group of over 3,000 studies, but it’s the pearl of them all.
The study relates to free fatty acids – what I call, very simply, blood fat.
Read this very carefully: Has your doctor told you how to keep dangerous blood fat out of your bloodstream?
And yet, blood fat is the most dangerous toxic threat to our health today…
…according to The Censored One study that Big Pharma corporations pray you never see.
Should you be taking more risks?
To improve our lives we must make the right decisions.
Reducing stress is the first decision that must be made – because stress destroys our decision-making capacity.
We can all remember times when we were under acute stress and made a bad decision at the moment.
And it’s very easy to see what went wrong when we look back on it.
But what about the effects of chronic stress on decision-making?
These experiments took place at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
The scientists wanted to look at the effects of chronic stress on the part of the brain that is involved in anxiety and depression.
This region of the brain is also involved with evaluations of cost, effort, and reward.
Rodents were trained in tasks relating to cost and benefit.
In one experiment, the rodents were given a choice of:
1) Chocolate milk (high reward) under an unpleasant powerful light (high cost).
2) Diluted chocolate milk (low reward) under a dim light (low cost).
(Rodents are active at night – they usually avoid light.)
Through repeated tests, the scientists evaluated the decisions the rodents made.
Then the test parameters were altered.
The strong light was dimmed or the dilution of the chocolate milk was changed.
They kept altering the parameters until all the rodents were making similar choices.
Then some of the rodents were exposed to chronic stress.
Two types of stress were used separately on different animals.
The first type of stress was restraint in a small container. The animals could breathe freely but couldn’t move around very much.
The second type of stress was small electrical shocks on their tails.
Both experiments were run every day for a 2-week period – to differentiate between chronic and acute stress.
There were also control animals, not exposed to the stressors.
The results showed that chronic stress had major effects on the decisions the rodents made.
The chronically stressed animals tended to select high-cost high-reward options more than the other animals.
The rodents started to make bad decisions after chronic stress. Their decision-making had been changed.
“We report that chronic stress exposure in rodents produces an abnormal evaluation of costs and benefits resembling non-optimal decision-making in which choices of high-cost/high-reward options are sharply increased.”
Stressed animals became risk takers.
They became much less able to resist the high payoff scenario, even though there was a high cost to it.
These changes in behavior caused by chronic stress were accompanied by changes in the brain region involved in anxiety and depression – and evaluation of cost, effort, and reward.
The effects of stress on these brain circuits could be blocked by optogenetic procedures that have previously been shown to alter these regions.
(Optogenetics is a process using genetic engineering to make cells respond to light in a certain way.)
The scientists concluded that chronic stress can alter brain activity.
And they also concluded that the alterations in these regions of the brain can lead to poor decision-making.
“We suggest that altered excitation-inhibition dynamics could be an underlying mechanism by which chronic stress contributes to disorders characterized by aberrant decision-making under conflict.”
Neuropsychiatric disorders are also known to alter these decision-making capabilities.
Poor decision-making is associated with neurological and neuropsychiatric symptoms including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and Huntington’s disease.
All of these affect the same regions of the brain.
It seems that in order to make improvements in our life we need to place chronic stress reduction at the top of our priority list.
Because when we are chronically stressed we can’t make good decisions as often.
You should see a medical professional for any health problems.

Stress, a necessary evil of the modern life can affect us all. But though a little bit of stress is actually beneficial, long standing stress can be detrimental in the long run for the health of men. Stress is a normal body’s reaction to harmful situations, whether that threats is real or perceived. It is surprising to learn that perceived stress accounts to around 75% of the stress levels that a man can undergo in his life.Stress can directly affect the emotions, behaviors, the thinking ability and also the health of men. Some of the symptoms of stress in men include frustration and easily getting agitated. Some individuals can get moody and can feel overwhelmed as if they are getting out of control or they have to take control. In severe cases it can cause high blood pressure and cause shortness of breath. Men have much difficulty in relaxing and quieting their mind when in stress, which in the long run can actually play havoc with the nervous system. This can cause headaches and dizziness in men which can also lead to extreme fatigue like conditions. Men usually complain of low energy and there maybe the prevalence of aches and pain in the muscles because of long term stress that is not mitigated. The other physical symptoms of stress in severe cases include diarrhea, constipation and nausea which are usually the different conditions of an upset stomach. The heartbeats can increase rapidly when stressed. Stressed men usually suffer from insomnia and usually battle frequent colds & infections due to a weak immune system. Too much stress can be evident in symptoms like clenching of the jaw and grinding teeth as well as difficulty in swallowing. In many a case long term stress can bring down the sexual desire or the ability for sexual excitement among men. Too much stress has also been found to cause symptoms like cold or sweaty hands and feet.Stress can also lead to constant worrying and the inability to focus, in men. The individual can become overly pessimistic which is a result of constant worrying because of stress. There may be behavioural symptoms that can happen because of stress like changes in appetite and the increased use of alcohol, drugs and cigarettes. Stress can also lead to other behavioural symptoms like procrastinating and avoiding responsibilities. Long term stress can cause mental health problems like depression, anxiety and personality disorders. It can also cause cardiovascular diseases like heart disease and high blood pressure. Thus it is very important for men to seek medical attention and if possible to follow alternative treatment modalities for stress.
2. What are the reasons for stress?
The reasons for stress can be so many and varied, since modern life usually tends to put pressure on our time and responsibilities. Though stress is a normal part of life, the inability to cope or manage it can cause health conditions in the long term. Many of the so called modern diseases find stress as its root cause, so proper attention and mindfulness is warranted on this subject.Traumatic events such as death of a close acquaintance, natural disasters, violence, theft or rape can cause intense stress. Work stress may include having too much of a workload and also being unhappy with their present job. Working long hours on the job, which is usually seen in today’s competitive arena is also a reason or stress. Among lifestyle stresses, getting married or finding a increase in the financial obligations can be a cause of stress for many. The loss of a job and facing discrimination or harassment at work can also give rise to stress. There could be reasons that can be connected to one’s health that can cause stress. This may include a chronic illness or injury and any persisting emotional problems like depression, anxiety, anger, guilt, grief or a deep sense of low self esteem. Sometimes the cause of stress may not be any outside factors but due to deep personal issues like over worrying about things and the existence of fear and uncertainty about the future .Simple issues like not being able to pay the bills in time or not being able to complete the work project in time can also cause stress. Unrealistic expectations can also cause a lot of stress in the human mind and body such as having a very set attitude about life and blaming oneself or self criticising very harshly if something goes wrong. Many life changes can also be a reason for great stress such as a Divorce or a major financial setback in life. When stress is long term and is not properly addressed it can lead to several issues like depression, high blood pressure, Heartburn, weight gain or loss and fertility problems. Thus managing of stress is very important for the upkeep of the human body.
