According to a new study conducted by McGill University, young men who experience difficulties with depression are more vulnerable than women to spend hours in front of a television/computer screen later on in life.

As much research has reported, lack of physical activity is associated with a range of diseases including diabetes and cardiovascular disease. The researchers discovered from their sample that there were significant differences among young men and young women in their involvement with television/computer time four years after being identified with symptoms of depression. The researchers found that young men spent on average four hours more watching television or online than young women did per week.

This highlighted research project provides emphasis on finding adequate counselling support for young men or young women who may be experiencing difficulties with depression or symptoms of depression.
