There are many reasons why people suffer from depression

There are many reasons why people suffer from depression. Some causes are environmental while others are genetic. By analysing the DNA of over 300,000 people in Europe, scientists have recently discovered 17 distinct genetic variations that increase the risk of a person developing depression. The presence of each genetic variant is believed to make a tiny contribution to the chances of someone developing the condition. Pointing out that depression is really a disease of the brain, the researchers hope that their findings will lead to new treatment options.
