In brief: Untreated depression

Investigators at the johns hopkins bloomberg school of public health, baltimore, maryland, found that young adult men with depression were nearly twice as likely to have died from any cause compared with those without depression.
Further, roughly one half of deaths among young adult women with depression were due to cardiovascular disease compared with about 13% of their counterparts not depressed.
