Health takes a hit as economy creates more stress

USA Today, October 7, 2008
Economic stress is taking its toll on U.S. residents' emotional and physical health, new survey data show. A survey conducted by the American Psychological Association found that more than half of Americans report irritability or anger, fatigue and sleeplessness, and almost half say they self-medicate by overeating or indulging in unhealthy foods. Money and the economy topped the list of stressors for at least 80% of those surveyed.
