+ - Childhood Stress Leaves Genetic Scars->

Submitted by sciencehabit
sciencehabit (1205606) writes "Traumatic experiences in early life can leave emotional scars. But a new study suggests that violence in childhood may leave a genetic mark as well. Researchers have found that children who are physically abused and bullied tend to have shorter telomeres—structures at the tips of chromosomes whose shrinkage has been linked to aging and disease."
