Spoiled Children of Divorce


Rising Stroke Rates in Children

I blogged a few weeks ago about the current publishings from Researchers at the University of Toronto who found that Children of Divorce from my era are twice as likely to suffer from strokes.  As I understand it, the research ruled out all other reasons why the divorce rate would be so high.  The study was initially done on people to try to understand long term effects of abuse on children.  The findings about Divorce were just a side finding of the study.

Today there is a new article on Yahoo about how younger people are suffering rising stroke rates.  This study says that it figures that the reason for this is childhood obesity.  Other physical reasons are considered as well.  Divorce, of course, isn’t.  Enjoy. (I’m sort of wondering if use of electronics like computers and cell phones isn’t connected with the cause, but what do I know?)
