The children of children who were abused as children have different needs than their peers, according to a new study that examines the impact of child abuse on their health.
The study, conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), found that the children of people who were physically and emotionally abused as a child are significantly more likely to develop chronic health problems than children of nonabused parents.
The children who had experienced abuse were also more likely than children who did not have the trauma to develop serious chronic conditions like asthma, obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
The report found that children who lived in homes with at least one parent who experienced abuse experienced significantly higher rates of asthma, hypertension and other chronic conditions.
The report also found that these children were more likely and to suffer from a host of chronic health conditions, including obesity, Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
More than 70 percent of the children in the study had asthma, which was more than twice the rate for children living with other children who experienced the same trauma.
They were also five times more likely, on average, to have high blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
Children who had been physically and/or emotionally abused by their mothers were also nearly three times more than children in other families to have Type 2 Diabetes.
They also had a higher rate of hypertension and cardiovascular problems.
Children of abused parents were also at a higher risk of having diabetes and high blood cholesterol.
The authors of the report also noted that while the children were less likely to have asthma, asthma and hypertension were still a serious health problem for the children, especially for those who were older than 10.
The researchers, who examined data from the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), found children in families with multiple abusive parents had higher rates for asthma, heart disease and other serious health conditions.
For example, children of abusers were more than four times as likely to experience Type 2 Diabetes.
The study also found those who lived with multiple abusers had higher levels of asthma and high cholesterol.
Children in households where at least two of the parents were physically abused as child have more health problems, according the report.
The researchers also found children living in families where at the time of abuse experienced more chronic health issues, including asthma, elevated blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes.
The research comes on the heels of a report from the University of Illinois, which found that more than 60 percent of children living on welfare in Chicago had been abused at some point in their lives.
The Chicago study also noted higher rates in neighborhoods with more residential segregation, as well as the presence of more violent and aggressive neighborhoods.
Children living in the Chicago neighborhoods with high rates of residential segregation were also found to be more likely for their health problems to worsen over time.
