October 5th, 2012 A study conducted at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock has found that people who live in cities with high levels of air pollution are more likely to suffer from depression. The study looked at data from cities across the United States and found that living in cities with higher air pollution levels was linked to an increased risk of depression. The study also found that the effects of air pollution on mental health were greater in women than in men. The researchers believe that this could be due to the fact that women are more likely to be exposed to air pollution than men, as they are more likely to spend time outdoors. The findings suggest that improved air quality could help to reduce the prevalence of depression in cities.
