The drive for self-preservation is the most natural and essential property of life. But how can we use this biological urge in a society that needs cooperation to survive? Altruistic egotism is Dr. Selye's answer. It's a form of cooperation that appears everywhere in nature. In human terms, altruistic egotism means deliberately helping others in order to gain their goodwill and trust for your good. This hoard of goodwill gives you a sense of security and self-esteem to cushion you against the hurts and frustrations no human being can avoid. Dr. Selye's motto: earn your neighbor's love. - Jacket flap

Stress in health and disease by Hans Selye( Book )

It addresses the diseases of adaptation or stress diseases, diagnostic indicators, and functional changes. Some of the topics covered in the book are the concept of heterostasis; stressors and conditioning agents; morphology of frostbite; characteristics manifestations of stress; catecholamines and their derivatives; various hormones and hormone-like substances; FFA, triglycerides and lipoproteins; morpho
Cancer, stress, and death by Jean Taché( Book )

10 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When I delivered the keynote address at our joint 1977 symposium on Cancer, Stress, and Death in Montreal, I took great pride in announcing my unique qualification for this singular honor-I had survived a normally fatal cancer, a histiocytic reticulosarcoma that had developed under the skin of my thigh several years pre viously. Faced with the physical and emotional realities of this situa tion, I refused to retreat from life in desperation. I immediately underwent surgery and cobalt therapy, but insisted on knowing my chances for a lasting recovery, which at that time seemed far from encouraging. Although I knew it would take tremendous self-discipline, I was determined to continue living and working without worrying about the outcome. I suppressed any thoughts of my ostensibly imminent death, but rewrote my will, including in it several suggestions for the continuation of my work by my colleagues. Having taken care of that business, I promptly forced myself to disregard the whole calamity. I immersed myself in my work-and I survived! But, of course, this was not my only reason for my feelings of pride and accomplishment

7 If so, the individual members of each class thus identified could then be subjected to a more profound pharmacokinetic analysis. In other words, we had to determine first which hormone protects against which drug, before we could explore how it did this. We had to know first that a hormone has adaptive value before we could ask whether this is due to a syntoxic or a catatoxic mechanism. Such observations, as the fact that an indomethacin-induced intestinal ulcer can be prevented by ethylestrenol, orthat cortisol aggravates certain infections, reveal nothing about how these hormones work; but only findings of this type can tell us where further research would be rewarding. Of course, scientists can rarely identify by direct observation the tbings that they are looking for; most of the time they have to be guided by indirect indices. The ebernist often first detects a compound, or even a particular functional group in its molecule, by inference from a color reaction, a revealing X-ray diffraction pattern or the formation of a characteristic precipitate. The physician must first suspect the presence of a microbe through certain clinical signs and symptoms before he can verify his diagnosis by looking for a particular organism. It is perhaps not too daring to hope that in our first efforts to clarify the role of hormones in resistance, simple, directly visible indicators might also serve us best

Endocrine Aspects of Disease Processes presents a critical review of hypothalamic hormones regulating the secretion of the anterior pituitary.

Some of the topics covered in the book are the characteristics of brain plasticity under stress; the sleep-wakefulness patterns; the endocrine factors in the etiology of peptic ulcer; and blood sugar levels and allergies.
