May 28, 2012 - You might be able to tell if someone is depressed by watching how they use the internet. A new study found students who show signs of depression tend to browse the web more randomly and switch between several applications. Researchers at the Missouri University of Science and Technology found nine patterns of internet usage that may indicate depression. The researchers followed 216 undergraduate students, and analyzed their usage to find the patterns.
Also, if you want to live longer, you may want to head to the kitchen instead of a restaurant. A new study finds a connection between cooking at home and longevity. Taiwanese and Australian researchers tracked men and women in Taiwan for more than 10 years. They found that frequent home cooking along with other lifestyle choices such as grocery shopping and not smoking led to a longer life. The study is published in "Public Health Nutrition."
