TV shows more easy to get depression

The latest study by Harvard University in the Journal of Epidemiology found that watching TV more often leads to depression.

Watching TV for a long time can lead to a variety of psychological and physical symptoms associated with depression.

  Dr. Michael Lucas, head of the new study, said that regular exercise can reduce the risk of depression, because exercise can enhance self-esteem, enhance self-control and improve brain euphoric hormone endorphin.

New research on participation in 1992?
A careful analysis of more than 50,000 women in the US Nurses’ Health Study in 2006 found that women who exercised regularly had a 20% lower risk of depression than women who did not exercise regularly.
  In the study, the researchers recorded the length of time that the participants watched TV every week in 1992. The participants answered about 1992.
The frequency of walking, cycling, running and swimming in 2000.

Non-material, the researchers surveyed the participants’ new clinical symptoms of depression and taking antidepressants.

During the analysis, the researchers considered health and lifestyle factors associated with depression.

For example, weight, smoking and various diseases.

The results of the analysis showed that participants with the least exercise (less than 10 minutes per day) scored the most exercise (at least 90 minutes per day) and the risk of depression was reduced by 20%.

Participants who watched TV for at least 3 hours a day were 13% more likely to suffer from depression than those who rarely watched TV.

  Scientists point out that depression can be caused by multiple causes rather than a single cause.

Should pay attention to the three major symptoms of depression: 1.

Psychological symptoms: persistent low mood, sadness, despair, helplessness and low self-esteem.


Physical symptoms: Movement or language becomes sluggish, appetite and weight changes (usually falling, sometimes increasing).


Social symptoms: work is not done well, hardly participate in social activities, avoid contact with friends.

  Treatment for depression usually includes: combination of medication, medication, and “self-help” (self-help).
