When did we identify stress as a health issue?

    Stress began to be first analyzed in terms of its effects on human health by French physiologist Claude Bernard in the 1850s. Potential effects of emotional stressors were developed by neurologist Walter Cannon, working off of Bernard’s publications, during the early 20th century. Hans Seyle, Canadian endocrinologist, added the final missing piece in our modern conception of stress by confirming the hormonal construction of the neurochemicals that cause stress.

    Our contemporary take on stress entered culture in the late 1950s, but the scientific groundwork for creating our conception of stress as a health issue started in the mid-19th century.
