In brief: Stress promotes

Stress increases cortisol level in our body; fear and anger for example are associated with increased heart rate, digestive problems, and increase in sweating.
Stress leads to increased Adrenalin response. These changes are mediated in brain through a circuit of brain called limbic system. Continued exposure to stress leads to hypertension, metabolic syndrome, and heart disease.
