the Tendency to suicide is determined at birth

the Tendency to suicide is determined at birthA large-scale study showed that the risk of suicide is affected by factors such as birth weight and maternal age. Swedish researchers have tracked the fate of 700 thousand young people born between 1973 and 1980. Of these 397 men and 166 women committed suicide. Among those who attempted suicide were 2000 men and 4700 women. The average number of suicides in Sweden is 20 people per 100 thousand. The researchers found that children born weighing less than two pounds, two times more likely to commit suicide than those who at birth weighed from 3.25 to 3.75 kg Children born to mothers under the age of 19, to commit suicide twice as often than those whose mothers gave birth at the age from 20 to 29 years. The risk of suicide is also higher among those whose mothers had not received higher education and have more than three children. The researchers emphasize that their data do not answer the question about the causes of suicide, but they are forced to pay more attention to prenatal factors and provide expectant mothers more support during pregnancy.
