Early life stress: the biological impact of rising inequality -- Destined to thrive, destined to struggle: the critical period of baby's first year -- Into the arena: the world of peers and schools -- Onto the stage: stress and coping in adolescence -- The stress tests of adulthood: managing family, work, and relationships -- The stress epidemic: the hidden costs of inequality -- Inequality is not destiny: how we can break the cycle.
"Why are we the way we are? Why do some of us find it impossible to calm a quick temper or to shake anxiety? The debate has always been divided between nature and nurture, but as psychology professor Daniel P. Keating demonstrates in Born Anxious, new DNA science points to a third factor that allows us to inherit both the nature and the nurture of previous generations--with significant consequences. Born Anxious introduces a new word into our lexicon: "methylated." It's short for "epigenetic methylation," and it offers insight into behaviors we have all observed but never understood--the boss who goes ballistic at the slightest error; the infant who can't be calmed; the husband who can't fall asleep at night. In each case, because of an exposure to environmental adversity in utero or during the first year of life, a key stress system has been welded into the "on" position by the methylation process, predisposing the child's body to excessive levels of the stress hormone cortisol. The effect: lifelong, unrelenting stress and its consequences--from school failure to nerve-wracking relationships to early death."-- Amazon.com.
Keating examines new DNA science, "epigenetic methylation," that offers insight into behaviors we have all observed but never understood. Because of an exposure to environmental adversity in utero or during the first year of life, a key stress system has been welded into the "on" position by the methylation process, predisposing the child's body to excessive levels of the stress hormone cortisol. The effect: lifelong, unrelenting stress and its consequences. Keating demonstrates how we can finally break the cycle.
