Aggressive children may have poorer health as adults, study finds

LOS ANGELES • Lifestyle choices — what you eat,
how much you exercise — may not be the only forecaster of health
later in life. A study in the Canadian Medical Association Journal
finds that behavior in childhood, such as aggression and social
withdrawal, could predict more sickness in adulthood.

The study, released this month, followed 3,913 children from
1976 to 1978 when they were in grades one, four and seven, through
1992 to 2006. Researchers discovered that displaying aggression in
childhood was linked with an 8.1 percent increase in medical
visits, a 44.2 percent rise in lifestyle-related illnesses and
conditions such as obesity, alcohol dependence and Type 2 diabetes,
and a 10.7 percent increase in injuries. That behavior was also
associated with 12.4 percent more emergency room visits and a 6.2
percent boost in trips to see specialists.

For girls, childhood aggression was linked with more
gynecological visits from ages 18 to 23, although that association
wasn’t seen when the women were age 29 to 34.

Other types of behavior in youth had an impact on health in
adulthood. Being socially withdrawn was linked with an increased
number of dental visits later in life; researchers think this could
be due to lower socioeconomic status or shyness, which could lead
to being hesitant about seeing a dentist, ultimately requiring more
emergency visits. With popularity, however, came some benefits:
Being more likable in school was associated with less use of health
services later. suggesting that these people had less risky
behavior and more peer support that could relieve stress.

Education also had an effect on health. Those with lower levels
of education were more likely overall as adults to use more medical
services, including trips to the emergency room, visits to the
dentist, hospital admissions and doctor visits due to injuries.

“Our results,” the authors wrote, ‘suggest that childhood
aggression has lasting effects on physical health and can have an
impact on the level of use of medical services over many years.”
They added that targeting this group of children and offering
better health education could pay off down the road.

  • Wide range of flexible payment options. Cost shouldn’t prevent patients from getting the dental care they deserve. That’s why Aspen Dental offers fees that are below market average, special promotions and senior discounts, and free new-patient exams and X-rays for patients without dental insurance. Personalized, flexible payment plan options are available for patients who’d like to finance their care. The practice works with all insurance providers and handles the paperwork, saving patients time and hassle.
  • Convenient hours and location. The office will be open extended hours, including evenings and select Saturdays, so that patients can receive their care at a time that works best for their schedule. Walk-in and emergency patients are welcome.
