New Cambridge University study shows stress has enormous effect on risk-taking in finance; popular anti-stress pill may provide a solution
NEW YORK, Feb. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A new study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences states that financial crises may actually be prolonged by the stress financial traders and insiders feel.
The harmful effects of stress on many aspects of life and health are well-known. More than 20 years ago the subject of stress became a hot topic in the medical and scientific field, and based on all the research The Carter-Reed Company developed and released its widely popular "stress-reducing, feel-good pill," Relacore® Extra. And when stress became recognized as a significant factor in belly fat retention, Relacore Extra, became known as "America's #1 Belly Fat Pill."
More recently, stress has been linked to telomere shortening, or in simple terms, cellular aging. In a landmark research study, also published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers found that the cells of healthy women who were considered "high stress" appeared* to be about 13 years older, on average, than the cells of healthy women considered "low stress." This revelation caused Relacore Extra to increase its fan base, becoming known still more widely as an "anti-aging" pill.
And now, of all things, Relacore Extra may even become known as the cure for the world's financial woes. Everyone knows that working on Wall Street is a high-stress, high-pressure job. But this new research by Professor John Coates, a Cambridge university neuroscientist and former Wall Street trader, has broader implications than simply making stressed-out traders feel better (and maybe even shed some stress-related belly fat).
Coates' study showed that levels of the stress hormone cortisol increased by an average of 68% in market traders during a period of increased market volatility. Sounds logical, right? But the study goes one step further, demonstrating that, when cortisol levels were increased in double-blind clinical test subjects by an identical 68%, subjects became almost "frozen" in their willingness to take risks. The research speculates that this paralysis in risk-taking may have profound implications for the financial market, slowing down investing and turning a sluggish economy even more static, just at the exact point when risk-taking and increased economic activity is most vitally needed, and most profitable. It's a vicious cycle that may explain why Relacore Extra is fast becoming a staple among high-pressure traders and business execs.
"This isn't the first time Relacore Extra has found popularity in an unexpected market," says Gina Daines, spokesperson for Carter-Reed. "But it is the first time that the formula could be said to have a potential impact on the financial system of the United States. Perhaps we should send a case of Relacore Extra to the Congressional Budget Office with a suggestion to distribute it to anyone involved in financial projections. Who knows… it may have a profound effect on the financial well-being of the country."
