As per the Medical Professionals, who all have studied the impact of the adverse childhood experience (ACEs) with the lifelong mental health, said that this is serious. The awareness about this need to grow as it will link between the childhood trauma that is on long-term physical health.

It has been seen that the more the ACEs a person suffers while being a child, the person then get the high risk of problems in learning, physical and mental health. The person may attain an early death too. The main reason behind this that the person is experiencing the toxic stress.

It comes with the wide range of health problems that are in the later part of the life. The Toxic Stress seems to allow to make understand about the relationship that exists and how one can able to get to the inside of developing biological systems in the body.
