Risky Behavior In Teenagers Leads To Depression

Teenagers of both sexes involving themselves in dangerous behaviors are prone to develop symptoms of depression, reports a new study// supported by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDS) and National Institute of Health.

Researchers compared teenagers who were involved in these risk behaviors (drug /alcohol / tobacco / sexual abuse) to those who did not indulge in such deeds. They concluded that irrespective of the degree of risk activity, there was an increased risk of developing depression symptoms in both the sexes. Teenagers who did not get involved in such risky activities had lower depression symptoms than those who did. For example, girls who tried out sex had four times more depression symptoms than those who refrained from such activities.

Research conducted by Dr Martha Waller of the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation indicates that boys and girls exhibited different depression symptoms and it was related to their risk behaviors.
