Zebras don't get ulcers

In a talk titled "Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers," neuroscientist Robert Sapolsky discusses why animals handle stress better than humans—or rather why humans don't handle stress as well as animals. Basically, it's because humans can stress themselves out with a thought.

The talk also covers the effects of stress on children and concludes with a discussion of how to cope with stress.
