On 12 July 2017 The Associated Press reported:
It's no secret that growing up in tough circumstances can be hard on kids and lead to behavior and learning problems. But researchers are discovering something different. Many believe that ongoing stress during early childhood -- from grinding poverty, neglect, parents' substance abuse, and other adversity -- can smolder beneath the skin, harming kids' brains and other body systems. And research suggests that can lead to some of the major causes of death and disease in adulthood, including heart attacks and diabetes. . . . Experiments in animals and humans also suggest persistent stress may alter brain structure in regions affecting emotions and regulating behavior. ... 'The science of how poverty actually gets under kids' skin and impacts a child has really been exploding,' said Dr. Benard Dreyer, a former president of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
