Zinc deficiency a benefit of sickness behavior?[edit]

I can't find any citations to back up this claim, or the claim that dietary zinc is harmful in bacterial infections. I did find some evidence to the contrary. So, I have removed all references to zinc from the article. If you are aware of Reliable Sources that support the existing claims, then please restore them, making appropriate Citations. Thanks, Vectro (talk) 17:08, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

Expand tags[edit]

Hey, I was the editor who added the {{expand}} tags to the article. I did so because I thought the sections seemed shorter than the other sections. If you disagree with me, feel free to remove them. --I dream of horses (T) @ 03:19, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

Dr. Hans Selye[edit]

I thought that Dr. Hans Selye, "the father of stress", first described this syndrome when he was a medical student. But this article doesn't mention him. David Spector (talk) 21:01, 13 January 2014 (UTC)
