Thats the word from Vancouver-based nutritional expert Dr. Udo Erasmus, who says viewing traumatic incidents can trigger bouts of gastrointestinal stress.
Erasmus says people who saw the tragedy in person or on TV are liable to feel the type of stress that makes it hard to digest food properly.
Also, couch potatoes who get stressed from watching the news may also be at risk for depression, sore throats and increased allergies.
Even worse: Erasmus fears the British trait of having a stiff upper lip may make them more prone to tummy trouble.
Although taking vitamins and getting plenty of sleep and exercise can help people suffering terrorist-invoked tummy trouble, Erasmus also suggests sufferers process their problems by discussing them with friends and family.
