T-cell counts and stress

Oct 15, 2006

Has there been any data published that shows a correlation between decreasing stress and increased t-cell production?

Response from Dr. Horwath

Not specifically, but there have been some studies looking at the relationship between psychiatric diagnoses and T cell counts. These have not shown a direct relationship.

Clearly, stress has some effect on our health, but scientific evidence linking stress and T cells has not been found.
