Bullied Children More Likely To Become Unhealthy Adults

Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh have discovered some alarming news about bullying. According to UPI, being a bully or the victim of bullying in childhood can have long-lasting impacts on physical and mental health into adulthood. Bullies were more likely to smoke cigarettes, smoke pot, have stressful experiences, and be aggressive or hostile. The bullied had more financial problems, felt more unfairly treated by others, and were less optimistic about their future. Neither bullying nor being bullied in childhood was linked to inflammation or metabolic syndrome in adulthood. But both groups of men had negative health impacts such as risk factors for cardiovascular disease and other life-threatening diseases.
