Childhood Exposure to Trauma Ups Physical and Mental Risks

Childhood Exposure to Trauma Ups Physical, Mental Health Risks

A new research study suggests exposure to trauma can increase a child’s risk of developing learning and behavioral problems, and raise a child’s risk of obesity. Stanford University School of Medicine researchers said the findings could encourage physicians to consider diagnosing post-traumatic stress disorder rather than attentiondeficit/hyperactivity disorder, which has similar symptoms to PTSD but very different treatment. Investigators examined children living in a violent, low-income neighborhood and discovered an unexpectedly strong link between abuse, trauma and neglect and the children’s mental and physical health.



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.
