Why Is Adhd Genetic Drift Growing in America?
The growing genetic drift that plagues the American population is not only due to the use of new genetic technologies, but also due to genetic drift caused by older people who have been exposed to an older generation of their own.
Dr. Jennifer Breen, an associate professor at the University of California, Los Angeles, who has studied the issue, said the genetic drift affects all age groups and people with different genetic backgrounds, including older adults and their children.
“We’re seeing a real, real increase in the prevalence of ADHD and AD in the population,” she said.
She said she has seen that in states like Florida, California and Arizona, as well as the U.S. Census.
She also said there is a genetic component to the rise of ADHD in older people.
“There is evidence that older adults have more genetic variability and that older children have more variability in their genetic makeup,” she told ABC News.
“But it’s not clear that this is due to environmental factors or genetic drift.”
Dr. Breen said there are several theories to explain the rise in ADHD among older adults.
“One theory is that they have an increased risk of ADHD if they are exposed to the environment that they were exposed to in childhood, which is a problem,” she added.
“Another theory is a combination of genetics and environmental factors.
In some cases, older adults with higher levels of risk for ADHD may have more environmental exposures that may have contributed to their higher risk.”
The problem of ADHD among elderly Americans is a growing one, especially in states where older adults are concentrated in older communities.
