Bel Marra Health, well known for offering high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, supports a British Medical Journal report that shows how the effects of bullying are often carried on through aging.
According to a recent medical report published in the British Medical Journal, the effects of bullying are often carried on through aging and that this form of abuse may eventual result in more serious consequences. The proponents of the study wanted to determine whether bullying during childhood influences the risk of suicide and other forms of self-harm during aging. Using a study population consisting of approximately 2,141 British children within the age range of 5 and 12 years of age, the researchers conducted an interview regarding this form of victimization. The children were asked if they had any experience of being victimization by a peer, and if so, how many months or years did they go through this incident.
The information gathered from various age groups were then compared to find out if there are any trends if the effects of abuse were indeed carried across the aging process to adolescence. The results of the study showed that approximately 2.9% of the study population, or 62 children tried to perform self-harm. In addition, more than half of this subpopulation (35 children) admitted that they were victims of bullying.
The results of the study showed that bullying and its associated effects of a young child are often preserved within the victim and this therefore increases the risk of self-harm and suicide during aging. The researchers theorized that the development of a disturbed emotional well-being among victims of abuse often deteriorate during the process of aging, thus resulting in a higher chance of self-harm.
Spokesperson for Bel Marra Health Dr. Victor Marchione says, “The victims of abuse were also observed to have other characteristics that have been brought about through the process of aging. These include low IQ and poor performance in school, as well as deterioration in the interactions with members of the family.”
The medical report also showed other characteristic patterns that these victims experience. These additional features may also further increase the likelihood of self-harm during adolescence. CEO of Bel Marra Health Jim Chiang says, “These include physical maltreatment by a parent or another adult within their immediate environment, as well as the development of a mental health condition. It may be possible that coupling bullying with other negative social interactions may influence the way a child goes through the process of aging.”
