Here is an extensive list of the types of things which cause stress, and be careful, because it might just stress you out just reading it. First line of defense is to take long, deep breaths, and exhale very slowly. Remember, read at your own risk.

Allergies, Bacteria, and Viruses

Here are the ABC's of stress:

Allergens: including aromatic oils, automobile emissions, caffeine, coffee, dander, latex, nicotine, pollen, pollution, smoke, specific foods, tobacco smoke, toxic chemical residues and individual-specific allergens cause stress by reducing bodily functions and mental energy, causing lethargy and combating the immune system, thereby causing stress.
Bacteria and Viruses : bacterial and viral infections reduce the effectiveness of the immune system, slow down bodily functions, reduce the supply of nutrients and reduce bodily and mental energy , thereby causing stress.
Chemicals such as cleaning agents, fungicides, growth hormones, herbicides, insecticides, paints, and most man-made chemicals attack the immune system, impair breathing and oxygen intake, reduce the ability of the body to absorb nutrients and raise the acidity of bodily cells, thereby causing stress.

Ready for this stressor? 84,000 toxins are currently in our lives, and in the US, only 200 are being tested to see if they have harmful effects on us.

Dehydration, Emotional Issues, Employment, Exercise, Fast Foods

Dehydration caused by lack of water intake, excessive sweating, diarrhea, excessive urination, drinking too much coffee or carbonated soft drinks and eating too much junk food all impair the ability of the body to absorb nutrients and oxygen on a cellular level, thereby causing stress.
Emotional Issues whether unresolved, being resolved or resolved have all been shown to be major causes of stress. Signs include irritability, short fuse, moodieness.
Employment and doing work one does not love to do have been shown to be major causes of stress.
Exercise and exertion of any kind has been shown to cause stress. Oddly, heart patients learn their blood pressure and stress go down when they exercise.
Fast Foods including partially hydrogenated fats, trans fats, artificial coloring agents, artificial taste enhancers, artificial appetite appeasers, artificial aromatic agents, artificial sweetening agents and artificial preservatives are all toxic to the human organism, thereby causing stress.

Financial Problems, Fungi and Fungal Infections, Genetically Altered Foods

Financial Problems have been shown to be a major cause of stress.
Fungi and Fungal infections whether ingested, inhaled, externally or internally attacking the body are harmful to all life and the byproducts of fungal infections are toxic to living organisms, thereby causing stress and myriad psychological and medical conditions.
Genetically Altered Foods are known to cause asthma, attention problems, balance problems, behavioral problems, concentration problems, digestive problems, libido issues, memory problems, metabolic problems, perceptual problems, sexual dysfunctions and other disorders, thereby causing stress.

Heavy Metals, Irradiation, Lack of Sleep, Low Self-concept

Heavy Metals including especially arsenic, mercury and lead are implicated in adrenal, bone, bone marrow, brain, circulatory system, ear, eye, gall bladder, heart, intestinal, kidney, liver, lung, lymphatic system, pancreas, pituitary, skin, spleen, throat, thyroid, thymus and other problems, thereby causing stress.
Irradiation of foods has been shown to reduce the life force and greatly diminish the nutritional value of food; but by law all foodstuffs entering the USA and most of the civilized world must be irradiated for the public good, thereby causing stress.
Lack of Sleep and sleep problems whether caused by emotional, psychological or medical issues are a major cause of stress. Brain wave imbalances may contribute to sleeping problems.
Low Self-concept whether caused by bacterial, fungal or viral infections, poor nutrition, toxic chemicals, hormonal imbalances or other means is known to cause stress.

Medical Conditions, Diseases or Disorders, Microwave Radiation, Nutritional Deficiencies

Medical Conditions, Diseases or Disorders whether diagnosed or not, whether being treated or not, whether improving or not, are all known to cause stress.
Microwave Radiation from cell phones, microwave ovens, portable radios and telephones, television sets and other sources are known stressors with varying affects upon people for reasons currently under investigation.
Nutritional Deficiencies whether caused by disease, disorders, poor nutrition or poor absorption of nutrients are known causes of stress.

Overworking, Pain, Parasites, Prescription Drugs, Psychological Conditions, Relationship Problems

Overworking is known to be a major cause of stress.
Pain of any kind, including physical injury, mental trauma, emotional trauma or psychological issues, is a major cause of stress.
Parasites including thousands of medically undetectable parasites known to infest the human body, zap the body’s nutrition and energy, thereby causing stress.
Psychological Conditions, Diseases or Disorders whether diagnosed or not, whether being treated or not, whether improving or not, are all known to cause stress.
Relationship Problems of any kind have been shown to be a major cause of stress.

This will surprise you!

Once, I opened a book on stress, and the page said "95% of stress is caused by other people." Take stock of that one, and look for my next article, Peace Matters where I will show you how you can improve your relationships.
