If you’re SAD,

see the light!

and now scientists think they know why.

In the USA about 6-20% of people have SAD and it

is common in other countries like the UK and

Sweden. People get countries like the UK and

Sweden. People get SAD in autumn and winter,

when the days are shorter and there is less daylight.

It is more common in women than in men. People

with SAD usually sleep a lot and feel tired all the

time. They also eat a lot of sweet food and feel

depressed. The answer is bright light . You can go

on holiday to a sunny country, of course!

In the 1970s,an American engineer

called Herb Kern noticed that in

spring and summer he was happy

and had a lot of energy, but every

lazy. He thought it was because

there wasn’t much daylight in the

winter and asked some scientists to

make a ‘light box’. He put the box on

his desk and after a few days he felt

a lot better. In 1982 the scientists

gave his illness a name – Seasonal

Affective Disorder, or SAD.
