For their study, a team of researchers from University College London, University of Edinburgh, and University of Sydney, analysed data from 16 countries of 163,363 men and women aged 16 and over in a period from 1994 to 1998.

The authors of the study believe that their findings, though observational, add to the growing body of evidence that psychological distress can be connected to certain physical conditions. Dr David Batty, a lead author from University College London, says: “Our findings contribute to the evidence that poor mental health might have some predictive capacity for certain physical diseases but we are a long way off from knowing if these relationships are truly causal.”
