Depression has been on the rise in America for decades. I think there are many reasons for this. One of the reasons is bad diet!
Could there be a connection to the fact that Americans consume way too much of the wrong kind of oil? Most experts think the ratio between Omega 6 (vegetable-type oils) and Omega 3 (primarily found in fish) is way out of balance. Most researchers believe the right balance should be either 1:1 or 2:1. Americans are typically between 10:1 and 30:1.
