Child abuse causes gene mutation, impacting the next generation. Centuries of trauma to the male children in Tibet. Ripped away from their families in early childhood, sexually abused in the 'monasteries', the very young boys chosen to be a tulku, have identity loss. It's no wonder in adulthood these males struggle with addiction issues, alcohol, drug abuse, violence, sex addiction.
The genome scientists are saying:
"In addition to harming the immediate wellbeing of the child, maltreatment and extreme stress during childhood can impair early brain development and metabolic and immune system function, leading to chronic health problems.
As a consequence, abused children are at increased risk for a wide range of physical health conditions including obesity, heart disease, and cancer, as well as psychiatric conditions such as depression, suicide, drug and alcohol abuse, high-risk behaviors and violence."
