Health Issues in Childhood Often Show Up in Adulthood

Physical, mental stress at young age can have lifelong effects, research shows

TUESDAY, June 2 (HealthDay News) -- Physical and mental health problems in childhood can have lifelong consequences, which means it's important to start health promotion and disease prevention early in life, experts say.

In both cases, there can be a lag of many years, even decades, before early adverse experiences are expressed in the form of illness."

In a cumulative process, chronic diseases occur as the result of repeated physical and mental stress, the study authors noted in a news release from the journal.
