No Link between Obesity and Depression

According to a recent study it has been revealed that teens that are obese are less likely to be depressed.

It was revealed in the report though, that while teenagers are more vulnerable to the effects that obesity brings along with itself. These were the results of a study conducted by the Center for Child and Adolescent Health Policy.

They have conducted this research to find out the relationship of adolescents with the effects of depressions that comes with being fat.

"People assume that all obese adolescents are unhappy and depressed; that the more obese a teen may be, the greater the impact on his or her mental health. Our findings suggest this assumption is false”, said Elizabeth Goodman, director of MGHfC and lead author of the study.

It means that there is no obvious relation between being fat and being depressed. It is just by chance if a person is both fat and depressed.

There are different kinds of teens who have grown up in different types of social satire and personal relationships.

There is no link between being obese and being depressed. The white teens are vulnerable to it due to other characteristics like their eating habits as well as the peer pressure that says that it is wrong to be fat.
