Scientist shows link between diet and onset of mental illness
It is worth reading the report....and I know it is in mice etc but the bit that caught my eye was:
Garner's study raises questions of how diet might be affecting other behavioral or mental illnesses such as autism, Tourette syndrome, trichotillomania and skin-picking. He said that before now, a link between diet and the onset of mental disorders hadn't been shown.Excess frutose again? Imagine.....more sugar causing disease. Whatever will they come up with next!
"What if the increase of simple sugars in the American diet is contributing to the increase of these diseases?" Garner said. "Because we fed the mice more tryptophan than in the typical human diet, this experiment doesn't show that, but it certainly makes it a possibility."
