and aging are connected:
"Some stressful events seem to turn a persons hair gray overnight.
Now a team of researchers has found that severe emotional distress - like that caused by divorce, the loss of a job, or caring for an ill child or parent - may speed up the aging of the bodys cells at the genetic level.
The findings, being reported today, are the first to link psychological stress so directly to biological age."
