Final Answer- Stress can and cannot kill you but it depends on the situation. If your endangered and you trip over something or get eaten then yes it could kill you, but there are numerous ways for it to kill you. Other times it could not kill you, sometimes it makes you gain weight and other thing s might start happening.

All of the sources i placed on here was very relative to my Research and actually i didn't have a problem for the article (maybe some kinks, but not a big deal). In more detail some of the information kept repeating its way over throughout the other articles just in a different way.
