History of Depression Increases Heart Disease Risk
Shared by Ashlie
I'm learning more about Depression right now,and in particular what I'm wondering about is:What else affects it has on a person's life?. As I was reading im my Google Reader,this Blog post caught my attention because I found it interesting how much depression has affect on the little simple things that happen everyday such as your writing,thoughts, and even your self-esteem.
The quote I chose here is basically saying that the reason they research male twins cause they have the same genetic make-up and have grown up in the same environment so there for if one was found with depression or heart Disease cause of it then the other twin should be tested and most likely will come up with the same results.
I think this is strong because when a child is growing up in a family made up of him and his brother I would still think that they should do more research out side the family cause there could be that school has caused depression cause the twins don't hang out with the same people.It makes me wonder why siblings even twins tend to grow apart depending on how they were raised or if even separated I don't have any brothers or sisters so I don't really have an answer I guess teens that grow up alone such as me wonder how having a sibling would be but also being alone can cause much depression so I find it possible that Heart Disease does knot really surprise me.
The researchers analyzed data from more than 1,200 pairs of male twins who served in the U.S. military during the Vietnam War. Twins were selected because they are automatically the same age, they share the same family environment while growing up and they have the same DNA, giving them the same genetic risks.
