    Its not surprising. I have no doubt that they would find that the sicker one is no matter what the illness, the more at risk of suicide a person is.. no matter if its sick via an infection or something else.

    I havent read the study so I dont know what control group was used but this wouldnt be accurate to say infection is causing this unless their control group was others who were being hospitalised too.
