Study: Child Abuse Victims Have Altered Brains

Posted by Sandra On April - 25 - 2011
Victims of child abuse may have altered brains and stunted stress responses, according to new Canadian research. Physical, sexual, or emotional abuse can alter victims’ brain chemistry and may increase their risk of depression, the study shows. The study looked at adolescents who had some form of abuse as children and who were mildly depressed. They were found to release abnormally high levels of cortisol in response to mild stressors.



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.
