This is a new development in an old saga. I forget when I first read this idea ... the 90s maybe?
again, not "psychological mumbo jumbo bullshit" but way the physical body reacts to cope with stress, stress NOT being the psych's idiot idea of that term, but ANY form of stressor in proper sense, because our bodies are the product of 4 billion years of evolution, during which, stress, as load, damage, reaction to things, is a vital feedback and response mechanism
Our bodies are like self regulating engines.
Emotional stress shows "load", fight or flight, fear etc, the body responds to such to prepare to run away, deal with possible incoming trauma, or even I suspect, things like plagues, the reaction to such to get away, to heighten the immune system etc
However, the body is so incredibly complex as to stagger the mind, the Large Hadron Collider and physics are by comparison *simple*
Bacteria that are not true symbiots may well "watch" for events that indicate weakening of the immune system, to take advantage, or, because of complexity, have unintended reactions, possibly even reactions that kill the organism, but thus release toxins into the body.
Psychs need to read more engineering, IMHO
I think this is the original article:
