Depression linked to abdominal obesity (visceral fat).
“. . .The researchers found a strong correlation between depression and visceral fat, particularly among overweight and obese women. The results were the same even when the analysis adjusted for other variables that might explain the accumulation of visceral fat, such as the level of physical activity. The study found no association between depressive symptoms and subcutaneous fat. The findings were the same for both black and white women.
Powell speculated that depression triggers the accumulation of visceral fat by means of certain chemical changes in the body â€“ like the production of cortisol and inflammatory compounds â€“ but said that more research is needed to pinpoint the exact mechanism.”
