The Optimized Condition welcomes Dr. Mary Wingo to the show! Dr. Wingo is a scientist and author of the book "The Impact of the Human Stress Response." She earned a Ph.D. in human stress research from The University of North Texas. In 2014, She emigrated to Ecuador, and was introduced to a new and very different society.
This opened her eyes to the unsustainable social, economic, and political costs preventable stress causes in the modern world. Dr. Wingo's aim is to clearly explain to the public the biological mechanisms behind the stress response, as well as its staggering costs to society.
On today's show we will discuss her book which is the first analysis in history covering the scientific, biological, sociological, political, and economic ramifications of stress in modernized society.
