SAN DIEGO – Growing up in a troubled home can cut your life short or lead to a host of health problems later on, according to studies presented over the weekend at the American Psychological Association meeting.

In several major presentations, researchers outlined evidence that weathering difficulties as a child can set your health on the wrong course decades later.

“Our latest research shows that those reporting multiple adversities could shorten their life span by seven to 15 years,” says Janice Kiecolt-Glaser, a health psychologist at the Ohio State University College of Medicine. “What we have is clear evidence that adverse childhood experience may have lasting, measurable consequences.”



By the time you finish reading this, 15 children will have been abused; In the next five minutes, 30 more; Within the next hour, 360 more; And by tonight, close to 8,000+ children will have suffered from abuse, 5 of which will die. Child abuse has increased 134% since 1980 and is now considered a worldwide epidemic. The high jump in child abuse deaths and the shocking increase in statistics highlights the frightening lack of public knowledge.
