"It is not a controversial statement to say abuse and neglect can have harmful consequences," lead author Lee Raby, an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Utah, said. "This study adds to that by showing that these effects are long term and don't weaken with time. They persist from childhood across adolescence and into adulthood."

Fact or Fiction?
Daniel Boone was a colorful and important figure in US history. He was a famous explorer, military officer and folk hero. His exploits were so impressive that Hollywood made a tv series about him in 1964, starring Fess Parker. The series ran for six seasons. He is most famous for his exploration of Kentucky and finding a route through the midwest for travelers to the West. In 1776 a group of American Indians kidnapped three teenage girls, one of which was Boone’s daughter. Along with a few settlers, Boone pursued the group, rescued the girls and chased off the Indians. This event was captured in James Fenimore Cooper’s book “The Last of the Mohicans”
