Foods That Can Contribute to Depression

It’s time we start recognizing food and the role it has to play with depression.

Too many suffer with depression and don’t understand all of the underlying causes that could be contributing to it.

Recent evidence suggests a link between low levels of serotonin and suicide.

“It is implicated that lower levels of this neurotransmitter can, in part, lead to an overall insensitivity to future consequences, triggering risky, impulsive and aggressive behaviors which may culminate in suicide, the ultimate act of inwardly directed impulsive aggression.” 

None of the foods CAUSE depression alone. These are just examples of foods that can contribute to ones depression. As stated in the previous post, there are many underlying root causes of depression. Food is not the only issue, but it is one that gets skipped over often.
