Harvard study: 30 minutes of exercising/day reduces the risk of depression


New study suggests even half an hour of exercising per day can neutralise the risk of developing depression, including for the people with a family history of this condition.

Scientists at Harvard discovered that on average every 35 minutes spent being physically active can reduce the risk of depression by 17%.
