Discovered: HOW stress makes you sick – it compromises immune cells, turning their “defense chemicals” on themselves, resulting in inflammation, allergic reactions, increased risk of disease

The group carried out a rat study in order to determine how the immune cells responded to psychological and allergic stress.
