Child abuse or severe neglect has now been known to be the direct cause of the top diseases that we fight in America every day, including the number one killer heart disease.
Every year in America at least 400,000 children are born with the a c e score ( adverse childhood events ) of at least one. Now how does one find out their score well in America the CDC also known as the Center for Disease Control has a website and it has a test. Now the test only has 8 questions so the highest score a person can get is eight, the higher your score the more likely or the greater chances that you will have a serious disease. Also those with a score of 4 or higher also have a greater chance committing suicide they also have a greater chance contracting hepatitis C and their life expectancy is cut by nearly 20 years. The incarceration rate can also be attributed to the score along with mental illness.
It seems that the greatest cause for this childhood abuse and Trauma is of course Personal Choice by those who are the perpetrators but I bet you that number could be cut in half if it wasn’t for capitalism. So how do we as a society find a remedy for such an atrocity if not an atrocity then definitely a pandemic? We must act, all I can do is beg those who are hurting children right now to stop please if you cannot stop then maybe we can stop you before you hurt more children. So again this is a personal choice by those who perpetrate please control your actions and your thoughts.
