Being bullied is not just a problem during childhood

Being bullied is not just a problem during childhood – it may affect the victim’s health later on in life as well. According to a recent article in the Harvard Review of Psychiatry, bullying can raise the risk for conditions like diabetes and heart disease in adulthood because of the chronic stress it causes in children. Research indicates that such chronic stress may result in changes in the person’s normal hormonal, metabolic and inflammatory responses which can, over time, lead to various serious diseases and psychiatric disorders.
