New Study Highlights How Depression and Heart Health May Be Linked

What to know: A new study provided further evidence that your mental and physical health are linked. The study, which was conducted by researchers in Canada, tracked depression symptoms and heart issues across more than 145,000 participants from 21 countries.

The risk of heart issues and death increased by 20% in people with four or more depressive symptoms compared to those without.

The risk was higher in urban areas than in rural areas, and higher for males compared to females. According to a Simon Fraser University press release, it is important that this research be taken seriously in light of the current global health crisis.
