Depression lethal for cardiac patients
According to the study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, depressed individuals who exercise less and follow an unhealthy lifestyle are placed at an increased risk of suffering a second heart attack.

Findings revealed that depression is three times more prevalent among heart attack patients, adding that the condition leads to lack of physical activity, increased smoking rates and the tendency to stop taking medication regularly.

Scientists believe lack of physical activity aggravates depression in these individuals.

The study urges heart patients to exercise more and adopt a healthier lifestyle by putting an end to smoking and following a heart-healthy diet.
