A prescription for physical activity could be a valuable piece in a doctor's toolkit

Posted by

A new research study from Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, finds that both high and low intensity physical activity can help offset a genetic predisposition to developing depression.

Doctors should emphasize exercise!

A prescription for physical activity could be a valuable piece in a doctor's toolkit — not just for all patients, as everyone can benefit from increased physical activity, but particularly for those who have a genetic predisposition to developing depression.

"Our findings strongly suggest that, when it comes to depression, genes are not destiny and that being physically active has the potential to neutralize the added risk of future episodes in individuals who are genetically vulnerable."
