The Washington Post (4/24, Searing) reports, “Already known to help ease depression, regular exercise may also help prevent it, with people who exercised just half the recommended weekly amount lowering their risk for depression by 18 percent,” investigators concluded after analyzing “data from 15 studies, involving 191,130 adults who were tracked for at least three years.” Researchers also found that people “who were more active, meeting at least the minimum recommended physical activity level, reduced their risk for depression by 25 percent, compared with inactive people.” The findings of the systematic review and meta-analysis were published online April 13 in JAMA Psychiatry.
