Children Born During Recession More Likely To Commit Crime??

Baby Recession

Are babies born in the past couple years more likely to be criminals??

That's what a recent study suggests.

Dr. Seethalakshmi Ramanathan of State University of New York Upstate Medical University and her team surveyed babies born between 1980 and 1984- or as you now them, people in their early thirties!

They found that children born into areas where there was an economic recession, even a small downturn, were more likely to commit various crimes in their teens, such as drug use, stealing, and joining a gang!

And the increase wasn't only among the poor! Dr. Ramathan says:

"It basically went across all socioeconomic strata. From a national level, it seems like everyone is affected."

So what will the teens be like in 2029? Well, did you see Robocop?

JK! Srsly though, good thing we didn't go off that fiscal cliff!
