This calls to mind the book, Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers, which is a great book about stress in animals and humans. Perhaps problems cause us to die young because they are chronic, social problems, and our responses to stress are still better suited for the running-for-your-life-acute-stress-reaction type stress, like the zebra about to be eaten by the lion, or the lion whose cubs will die if she doesn't capture that zebra. Chronic exposure to stress hormones do make our bodies sick. Even shrinks our seahorses (hippocampi).
