Other causes of stress
said that this is the age of stress. We are exposed to various chemical, biological,
physical, and social stressors, such as toxic chemicals (including dioxin and
endocrine disrupting chemicals), air pollutants (diesel exhaust gas and particles),
viruses, radiation, ultraviolet light, noise, overwork, anxiety, insomnia, depression
There is now increasing evidence that shows the involvement
of such stress in a variety of disorders, diseases, and aging. It is a matter
of the utmost importance to study the biological effects of such stress and develop
means to cope with them.
Research aims to uncover the biological response
to such stress by molecular, cellular and tissue levels and develop a sensitive
and specific lab-chip to detect stress-markers and also devices to measure, in
situ, the extent of stress to humans. It is hoped that this research will take
the initiative for promoting stress-bioscience interdisciplinarily and internationally.
