AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Interaction between diet, sleep, alcohol use, stress genetics and depression risk

Cardiovascular disease and depression are associated, but direction is unclear - or both (heart attack is a stressor triggering depression, depression leads to less exercise and increases CVD). Sleep disturbance is associated with alcohol and depression - cause and effect unclear. Alcohol can increase depression risk, and vice versa. Increasing omega-3 vs. omega-6 may be preventive for both depression and CVD. AOU is longitudinal and over time, these cause effect relationships can be untangled
