Scientists believe that a telomere length is highly associated with hyperactivity-impulsivity in children with ADHD. It is already well known how ADHD can impact a family’s life, but scientists have now discovered that this condition also affects the DNA. They have discovered shortened telomere length in children with ADHD and their fathers and mothers. As we know, telomere length is highly heritable and parents with shorter telomeres transmit this characteristic to their children. Fortunatelly, many studies shown that the length of your telomeres can be changed by making diet and lifestyle changes (Harvard studies, for instance).
