Study links childhood well-being to future heart risks
Childhood well-being or psychosocial factors may affect the risk in adulthood of developing calcium deposits that block coronary arteries, which can raise the risk of heart attacks, according to a study in JAMA Pediatrics. Dr. Stephen Daniels of Children’s Hospital Colorado commented the important message from the study is that childhood stress can have many adverse effects, so parents should help children avoid it. Reuters (3/15)
