Solitude Could Be in Your DNA, a New Study Finds
For many years, scientists have been trying to understand why loneliness affects some people more than others. And these days the team of researchers from the University of California San Diego seems to have an answer. They conducted the largest DNA-based research on solitude.
They suggest that our environment is one of the most powerful influences on our feelings. Also, they found that certain genes make some people more alert to social relations, triggering depression when they feel neglected.
Feeling of solitude may raise the person’s probability of leading an unhealthy lifestyle, affecting their physical and mental health.
