According to a latest finding reported in the Guardian, Scientists have concluded that depression is less of a mental condition but more of a physical one. When an individual feels depressed, the body goes through a process akin to inflammation of the body’s immune system to kick into action a needed response. The culprit is the cytokine cell which sets off inflammation in the body and that is the reason why those affected feel low when depressed. The body reacts in the same way when an allergic condition is sustained.
It is well know that when people are depressed, they find it very hard to do anything tangible, even getting up from bed is often a daunting task. Depressed People often fail to come to work and absenteeism from work is the chief reason why depressed people could not lead normal and productive lives. Depression is very much a psychological condition as a physiological one.
