While literature suggests that early patterns of aggressive behavior in both girls and boys are predictive of a variety of health risks in adulthood, a longitudinal examination of the predictive links between childhood aggression, negative physical health outcomes in adulthood and overall use of health care has not been done. This study investigates the use of health care and a variety of physical health outcomes in adulthood in order to extend the current body of knowledge regarding the long-term negative sequelae of childhood aggression.
