This April 2, 2014 Philadelphia Daily News article found on the Philly.com website talks about not just the role that exercise can play in helping to reduce stress, but also includes some information about studies that have shown that there is an increased risk of PTSD among the children and grand children of Holocaust Survivors regardless of the amount of stress they are exposed to.  The thinking is that this observation may also hold true for the mental health of people in the African-American Community who are descendants of slaves.
