So, y'all know about how the big oil companies run around buying up all the patents on alternative fuels and electric cars and the like, right?

I'm starting to think that all the big pharmaceutical companies are running around buying up all the patents on any drug that might reduce the effects of stress in the human body.

I mean, think about it. We can't possibly eliminate stress in modern life. But the ways that our bodies react to all of it -- that's just chemical, right? It's a natural chemical reaction that, because of modern life, is being way overused and the overuse is damaging our relatively neanderthal bodies. Heart disease, high blood pressure, type II diabetes, weight, depression, susceptibility to disease (because of stressed out immune systems). All come from stress.

But stress is just a chemical reaction. And for every chemical reaction there's an opposite. So there's got to be a way to neutralize the effects of stress in the body. And once you neutralize the stress, all the symptoms should go away.

But that would be bad for the pharmaceutical industry who makes all of it's money off of treating our stress-related symptoms.

What do you think? Or am I wrong . . .
