Less night sleep increases risk

Sleeping for six hours or less per night may increase the risk of major depression especially among adolescents, a new research has warned.

According to the researchers, A genetic study of adult twins and a community-based study of adolescents both report novel links between sleep duration and depression.

A study of 4,175 individuals between 11 and 17 years of age is the first to document reciprocal effects for major depression and short sleep duration among adolescents using prospective data.
