Multiple studies have indicated that depression can greatly increase the probability of developing cancer and having a stroke, but a study published October 3 in Neurology reported that depression appears to increase the risk for Parkinson’s disease as well.

Of all the comorbid psychiatric diagnoses associated with Parkinson’s disease (PD), mood disorders are the most prevalent—showing up in approximately 40 percent of patients with PD, according to the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation.
