? Maybe the "new" part has to do w/ the 40% estimate? I recall the creepy/kind Mended Hearts guy cautioning me about risk of depression when he visited me in the hospital. I wonder what the incidence is in the general pop. Depression is complicated and has many causes, but I have to believe that a statistically significant portion is caused or exacerbated by exercise deficiency. There are more and more articles that conclude that "exercise is as effective as antidepressants" for treating depression in many people. I know it's not intended that way, but I kinda read that as "this one unnatural thing is as effective as this other unnatural thing" in treating depression. I feel like modern humans have started to look at physical activity as an "intervention" as opposed to a natural homeostatic function like sleeping and breathing. For a gazillion years physical inactivity was not an option as humans evolved. We are now experimenting in unknown territory.  Crying or Very sad For me personally, the psychological benefits of regular exercise are huge. Oh wait -- maybe it's because exercising causes me to drink more water, and municipal water supplies now contain measurable amounts of SSRI's -- hmmm.


19 December 2013

New research indicates that inactive patients following cardiac surgery have a substantially higher risk of depression and that the number of patients suffering from depression after cardiac surgery is as high as 40%. Investigators recommend that cardiac patients should be assessed for depression and level of physical activity and remain as active as they safely can after surgery to minimize post-operative depression. The results are published in the December issue of the Canadian Journal of Cardiology.
