Perceived stress during childhood has ‘far-reaching’ effect on cardiometabolic health

Adults who reported high levels of perceived stress, particularly throughout early childhood, adolescence and early adulthood, were much more likely to develop cardiometabolic risk factors than those with low perceived stress, data show.
