Study finds being overweight can cause depression

A large scale new study has proved that being overweight causes depression and lowers wellbeing.

It further indicated that both social and physical factors may play a role in the effect.

The findings of the study were published in the journal 'Human Molecular Genetics'.

With one in four adults estimated to be obese in the UK and growing numbers of children affected, obesity is a global health challenge.

Researchers are now discovering that being overweight can also have a significant impact on mental health.

The study sought to investigate why a body of evidence now indicates that higher BMI causes depression.
