Mood disorders shorten your life

People with mood disorders (depression, bipolar) in this study were found to have telomeres shorter by the equivalent of 10 years of aging.

This should prompt major medical attention and intervention.

  1. My guess would be the stress of having the illness, being low SES, being surrounded by other people who stress you...being more likely to smoke. Lots of reasons for people with mental illness to have shorter telomeres.
