Gene Mutation Linked to Seasonal Depression

Posted Nov 10 2008 4:30am

I’ve had my bouts with depression. So I can totally relate to people that get seasonal affective disorder, getting depressed in the fall when sunlight is fleeting, it really sucks!

Even Dr. Fuhrman acknowledges how tough it can be, that’s why he prescribes light therapy. Using therapeutic lights to get your sunshine and boost your vitamin D.

And now, no pun intended, a new study in the Journal of Affective Disorders sheds light on the disorder. A gene mutation in the eye could be to blame; HealthDay News reports.
