  1. Inflammation: The Common Pathway of Stress-Related Diseases                                  (Liu et al., 2017)                                                                                                                                                         In this review article, we provide evidence that stress induces or worsens CVD, NAFLD, depression, neurodegenerative disease and cancer through peripheral inflammation as well as neuroinflammation.
  2. The Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis, Obesity, and Chronic Stress Exposure: Sleep and the HPA Axis in Obesity (Lucassen and Cizza, 2012)                       As both the HPA-axis and sleep alterations appear to influence body weight regulation and composition, targeting them to combat the obesity epidemic appears to be a viable strategy.
