Bullying May Affect Health In Later Years.

The UK’s Telegraph (6/28, Adams) reports, “Researchers have discovered that teenagers who are ostracised at school are more likely to be at risk of developing heart disease and diabetes when they enter middle age.” And “girls appear much more susceptible to the ruthless social world of adolescence than boys, according to the Swedish study, which followed almost 900 students in the north of the country from 16 to 43.” It was published in the journal PLoS One. “The academics, from the universities of Umea and Stockholm, found those who had the worst time at school socially – being bullied, cast out orf isolating themselves – tended to be at the highest risk of poor health by their early 40s.”
