Study of 300,000 people finds telomeres, a hallmark of aging, to be shorter in individuals with depression or bipolar disorder and those with an increased genetic risk score for depression

  1. To me that paragraph sounds like they're saying "the association between age and telomere length was the same for healthy and affected subjects". That's a little confusing for me because they specifically cite differences in telomere lengths even among the affected subjects, depending on lithium use.

  2. Yeah it’s pretty stupid. And we have white supremacists and neo-nazis using false stats about the warrior gene to recruit so it absolutely is being used as phrenology

  3. wow just one more reason to make those of us who suffer with these things feel that much more shitty about ourselves. lmao
