Traumatic childhood experiences

Traumatic childhood experiences such as being neglected; suffering physical, sexual, or emotional abuse; or witnessing violence at home are known to health professionals as adverse childhood experiences, or ACEs. They may raise risk for developing health-harming behaviors, such as substance use disorders.A 2020 review published online by JAMA Cardiology found that adults who experienced four or more traumatic childhood events had twice the risk of cardiovascular disease and an early death compared with people who didn’t have any of these painful experiences.
