Dr. Vincent Felitti joins us to discuss the history of the famous Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) study, how childhood trauma can later manifest as physical illness such as cancer and heart disease, why things like obesity and smoking are often protective reactions to childhood trauma, how people with an ACE score 6 or higher have a 5000% greater risk of suicide, and how doctors and mental health professionals can better care for people suffering the consequences of childhood trauma.
