April 1, 2016 – Depression: Men more vulnerable to long-term effects of stress
It’s long been believed that women suffer more of the stresses of life, and research has shown that repeated stress can translate into depression.
So it might be logical to conclude that women who experience such stresses would suffer more depressive symptoms than men later in life, right? Wrong.
New research from the University of Michigan School of Public Health found that men are 50 percent more vulnerable to the effects of stress when the researchers examined how stressful events translated into depression 25 years later.
