Abstract

Various factors lead to stress in human beings which have a physical component and psychological component. These factors can be from the environment or from within the body. We propose a hypothesis that there is a third element where the stress factors can be transmitted from stressed lactating mother to their babies through breast milk. The babies thus exposed to high levels of stress hormones viz., cortisol display symptoms of stress. Chronic exposure to such abnormal levels of cortisol also lead to defective brain growth and the whole body overreacts to normal levels of stress hor-mones later in their life.
