Concise articles about how severe and protracted childhood trauma can adversely affect physical health (for example, by increasing the production of the stress hormone, cortisol, in the body and, also, by increasing the person’s risk of alcoholism, heavy smoking, risky behaviors and suicide), including increasing risk of obesity, heart disease and cancer. Indeed, some studies suggest that the experience of childhood trauma may reduce life-expectancy, on average, by 19 years.
