Stress has Proven Effect on Childhood Health

Posted: Updated:

In response to an article published by Foxnews.com, Dr. Michael Gabriel of Gabriel Pediatrics, a Brooklyn pediatric care center, says that a new study has found a link between stress and immediate negative health effects on children

BROOKLYN, NY / myprgenie.com / ACCESSWIRE / March 28, 2014 / Dr. Michael Gabriel of Gabriel Pediatrics, a Brooklyn pediatric care center, responds to an article published on March 12 by News.ufl.edu, which looks at recent research that found a correlation between the exposure to traumatic events and negative health consequences.

According to an article published on March 12th by UFL News titled “Stressful experiences have big, immediate effects on children’s health”,  a group of researchers from the University of Florida conducted a study that revealed that children with frequent adverse experiences are more likely to suffer negative outcomes on immune and neuroendocrine health.

The article’s author, April Frawley, mentioned that from approximately 96,000 children across America, 11- 24 percent of parents said their children had at least one disorder, with about 4 percent citing that their children had at least one disorder from all three study categories – mental, learning and physical.

Melissa Bright, a research coordinator for the UF Institute of Child Health Policy, cited that chronic toxic stress could be a plausible cause to the decreased abilities to fight against diseases and poor stress management by the body. However while traumatic experiences are linked to weak immune and neuroendocrine systems, Bright explained that further research needs to be performed to establish the correlation or direct effects.

Dr. Michael Gabriel of Gabriel Pediatrics, a Brooklyn pediatric care center, said that children are very impressionable. “Stress is definitely present in children,” says Gabriel. “While stress-taxing activities cannot be fully prevented, parents should always be on the lookout for their kids’ well-being.”
