The NYT published two articles this week on adverse childhood events (ACEs) and the effect on health. In summary, the more ACEs, the more risk of poor health. From the research and writing of Dr Nadine Burke-Harris, "Recognizing childhood adversity as a risk factor for how we’re going to deal with stress in the present is really important." Her new book, The Deepest Well, Healing the Effects of Childhood Adversity, raises awareness about this public health crisis.
