The ACE Study Login/Join

Well, I'm not fond of the Centers For Disease Control and it's push for an ever-increasing number of childhood vaccinations, nor of insurance companies as lobbying forces; but here they provide some interesting research, which one hopes will be utilized toward provisions of care and intervention everyone can afford.

The ACE study, which began in the mid-80's, examines the relationship between adverse childhood events (ACE) and adult destructive habits or lifestyles, such as smoking, drug use, obesity. Apparently the causal relationship between ACEs and those behaviors is fairly strong, which surprises few, intuitively.

Very interesting. As you noted, something we pretty much already knew from life experience, but here it is documented.

This sort of reminds me of the common boy-teen observation that the good-looking girls tend to like guys who drive shiny, sporty cars. And what do you know . . . ? Big Grin
