Research studies estimate that Schizophrenia affects 1 percent of the population and especially the adults worldwide. It is a mental disorder that appears in the late adolescence or even early adulthood.

However, there is less than 1 percent chance of developing it If there is no history of this disorder in the family.  But the risk rises to about 10 percent if a parent is diagnosed with schizophrenia.
    • Environmental Triggers- Studies show that stress-inducing factors such as exposure to viral infections, low oxygen levels during the birth, early parental loss, bad-tempered and stressful experiences can cause schizophrenia.
    • Chemical imbalances in the brain– Experts believe that abnormalities in the brain structure or abnormal brain chemistry also causes schizophrenia. Studies also show that the brain structure of schizophrenics is quite different than it was at the time of birth.

 

  • Drugs and substance abusers- The psychotropic drugs such as LSD, marijuana can possibly make schizophrenia. The soon you start the drug abuse, the more likely there is a chance of you getting the symptoms of schizophrenia such as delusions, hallucinations, inappropriate emotions, and trouble in thinking.
