Stress causes changes in numerous physiological, molecular, biochemical and behavioral events, as a reaction of all living organisms to any homeostasis disturbance, by translating extracellular signals into a specific cellular response via the process of signal transduction. This paper briefly summarizes the data from a number of laboratories, including our own, providing results on important physiological and molecular activities of living organisms under different stress conditions. The aim of this paper is to send the message that stress as a syndrome disturbs all vital functions of living organisms, leading to a broad spectrum of diseases and disturbances. Stress is the silent killer.
