Researchers Discover Your Eye Color May Make You More Susceptible to Seasonal Affective Disorder


Winter. Sucks. And if you’re unlucky enough to have brown eyes, you might be especially likely to get the blues in the winter, according to a new study.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) affects approximately 10 million Americans. To some folks, SAD only seems natural – who wouldn’t be depressed when they never see the sun and can’t leave their homes without the air hurting their face? Other experts are skeptical that SAD even exists.

Regardless of where you stand on the matter, SAD is a recognized form of clinical depression. It’s unclear what causes the condition, but researchers just discovered that eye color may play a role.
