Meat-eaters less depressed

A New Study Compares Depression Levels Between Vegans/Vegetarians And Meat Eaters

By a huge (in social science) 15%.

Add in the irony that they can’t take most antidepressants.

There are other problems nobody has yet studied properly.

Like bone health.

Difficult to make healthy bones without meat and dairy.

But what about the B12?

Well, if you damage your nervous system, it’s almost impossible to repair.

All vegans must supplement.

Claimed sources of B12 that have been shown through direct studies of vegans to be inadequate include human gut bacteria, spirulina, dried nori, barley grass and most other seaweeds. Several studies of raw food vegans have shown that raw food offers no special protection.

Symptoms of deficiency

Infants typically show more rapid onset of symptoms than adults. B12 deficiency may lead to loss of energy and appetite and failure to thrive. If not promptly corrected this can progress to coma or death. Again there is no entirely consistent pattern of symptoms. Infants are more vulnerable to permanent damage than adults. Some make a full recovery, but others show retarded development.

Failure to thrive is a PC term for retardation, retarded growth.

In adults typical deficiency symptoms include loss of energy, tingling, numbness, reduced sensitivity to pain or pressure, blurred vision, abnormal gait, sore tongue, poor memory, confusion, hallucinations and personality changes. Often these symptoms develop gradually over several months to a year before being recognised as being due to B12 deficiency and they are usually reversible on administration of B12. There is however no entirely consistent and reliable set of symptoms and there are cases of permanent damage in adults from B12 deficiency. 

Those are symptoms in common with the brain damage of starvation.

 Subsequently, abnormal myelination or demyelination occurs. The result is severe central and peripheral nervous system dysfunction.

It has long been known that B12 is vital for nerves to work properly, and it is only found in animal sources of food, not in plants. While it is made by our gut bacteria, it can only be absorbed in combination with something called intrinsic factor at the upper part of our intestines, so the B12 made in our colon by our gut bacteria is not metabolically useful.

All B12 supplements must come from animal sources.

signs of nerve death like numbness and tingling in the fingers and toes. However, its become clear that other symptoms of B12 deficiency can precede these classic medical findings, including depression and anxiety.

Of special interest is that brain levels of B12 do not necessarily match up with blood levels of B12.

They’re prematurely aging themselves.

In any event, brain levels of methylB12 (an active form of B12) plummet with age from 20 year-olds to 60 year olds. Also, methylB12 levels in those diagnosed with autismor schizophrenia were 1/3 those of age-matched controls, meaning B12 just wasn’t as active in the brain of those patients.

But it’s just brain fog? Right?

Wrong.

Cobalamin deficiency may cause cognitive deficits and even dementia.

Dementia is both a cause and a result of vitamin B12 deficiency.

Have you or a loved one experienced these signs of Alzheimer’s recently?

While you could be experiencing these symptoms due to Alzheimer’s or another dementia, it’s also possible that your symptoms could be related to low levels of vitamin B12.

Several studies have been conducted to establish the link between vitamin B12 and Alzheimer’s. Some, such as the study highlighted here, associate low B12 levels with both the symptoms of Alzheimer’s and actual atrophy (shrinkage) of the brain.

They're so stupid it's a laughriot

Either eat animal B12 or eat GMO.

Sugar causes depression in men

It’s nice to see more research looking at sex differences and effects on men in particular.

It has a big impact.

Ever notice the butterballs are all about estrogenic dairy and tons of ‘free’ sugar?

My advice?

Serotonin and sex

http://www.medicinehunter.com/chocolate_love_drug

“Chocolate gets right to the heart of sexual pleasure by increasing the brain’s level of serotonin, the feel-good brain chemical. Serotonin plays a major role in positive mood, emotional health, proper sleep and balanced appetite, contributing to numerous behavioral and physiological functions. Decreased serotonin is a well known factor in cases of depression. Increased brain serotonin promoted by chocolate increases sexual excitation, desire and responsiveness. Women have more serotonin in their systems than men and appear to be more sensitive to chocolate. Chocolate provides a mood boost to women during PMS and menstruation, when serotonin levels are often down. It also puts women in the mood for love. Men and women with depleted serotonin levels demonstrate increased aggressive sexual tendencies, a higher rate of masturbation, and increased promiscuity. Violence, aggressive behaviors, and higher rates of suicide have all been associated with reduced brain levels of serotonin. Many people consume chocolate as a form of self medication, whether they are aware of the fact or not. Chocolate’s serotonin elevating activity helps to modify mood in positive ways and acts as a sexual sweetener. These serotonin-related effects enhance the sense of closeness between lovers.”

I’m not saying anything.

But maybe the swain buying chocolates and flowers are onto something?

OT

How can atheists believe in positive energy anyway and how is that different from prayer, exactly?
Freud defined depression as ‘frozen anger’ and our generation is thawing. Gen Y are supposedly the ‘Hero’ gen for our time.
I think it’s also a large factor behind all the illnesses we’re seeming to get, more than other generations at our age. Repression causes illness, it is known, there is no stress without repression.
How long until Trump nukes Mecca, or Putin, he’s sick and old and doesn’t have to give a shit.

Hook-up culture and promiscuity bad for psychiatric health

The “Well, duh” brand of science.

h/t AC

“There’s always been a question about which one is the cause and which is the effect. This study provides evidence that poor mental health can lead to casual sex, but also that casual sex leads to additional declines in mental health.”

Age of first sex (what a pedophilic name that is) is a great marker for mental illness later in life, including risk of suicide. Yes, it very much includes abuse victims. Both count as social harm and personal damage.

Sex is an easy, natural high. Self-medication aside, the disturbance in the psyche caused by yet-more unstable chemicals, self-produced or not, would cause a downward spiral. It’s known as a self-destructive behaviour because there is no limit. It’s about dopamine more than serotonin, a close second. They are training their brain for the worst possible mechanisms, making it weaker, more capricious and brittle. These are the rats who would always push the dopamine lever, forsaking any food, until they die. It is an insane behaviour and at minimum, betrays a form of self-loathing which calls their willing consent into question. At least, medication must be regular and in this case it poses other health risks from the fact sexual activity is not (masturbation is lesser stimulus and may even out as a basic relief depending on timing). Many of them are on SSRIs, artificially boosting their body’s endorphins and continue to seek out more. It should be seen as self-harm, like cutting. They cannot appreciate the little things, which compounds the issue, like a hot-sauce addict who calls any food less spicy ‘bland’. Trendy, foreign food would also trigger dopamine release i.e. foodies are self-medicating. If placed on any dietary restriction, however minor, the novelty ‘buzz’ of food would wear off and they’d stop caring about it. Rations would infuriate and they queue for hours for a mediocre but fashionable dish. Fashions become insane because bored, rich people buy them. Fashions are casual because they are lazy and the psychology needs to be comfortable in looser clothing, compared to a minimal symbol of authority like a tie. They begin to loathe the sex they crave, from a feeling of entitlement, that ‘everybody belongs to everybody else’ and rejection becomes rage-inducting to them as narcissists.

There is no such thing as sex addiction because it’s simply more convenient for them than a dopamine drip (this would save the Government money in the long run and prevent their use as vectors of disease, including memetic transmission). However, sex is addictive. It’s a subtle distinction that must be made as they continue to plummet for the sake of a never-ending hunger, that is irrational and divorced from reality (read: psychotic). Unlike actual drugs, they burn out their body’s own production, which often leads them to begin supplementing with drugs to plug the deficit they feel, from party highs to mixing things and harder stuff. Escalation is the addiction and the sex itself is more a behavioural addiction that spirals into other habits, they do a similar thing with alcohol and chili peppers.

The Nazi undercut sported by hipsters is a symbol of victory over the ideology. It is also convenient to care for and less likely to pick up bugs from their indiscretions.

Self-styled alphas more prone to depression

Typical ‘blokes’ who see themselves as competitive, dominant playboys ‘at greater risk of depression’

“In general, individuals who conformed to strongly masculine norms tended to have poorer mental health and less favourable attitudes toward seeking psychological help, although the results differed depending on specific types of masculine norms.”
“While all typical “lads” were found to be at greater risk for mental health issues, the researchers found particular traits put a bloke at greatest risk.
They were self-reliance, the pursuit of playboy behaviour, and power over women.”

positive, negative, negative
creative, destructive, destructive
Men need women, punishing us for this is bound to eat away at them.

“The masculine norms of playboy and power over women are the norms most closely associated with sexist attitudes.
“The robust association between conformity to these two norms and negative mental health-related outcomes underscores the idea that sexism is not merely a social injustice, but may also have a detrimental effect on the mental health of those who embrace such attitudes.”

Using and then disdaining someone evolutionally in need of your protection and love (femininity) is sure to cause self-loathing. Guilt builds up over time into shame and then self-loathing, which is often projected to the trigger.
Sexism is really a neurosis, a rationalization of one’s personal potency. See Inferiority and Superiority Complexes.
It’s a lot of pressure to outdo billions of people, still living. They are terrified of mano-e-mano competition. Socially, other men terrify them, and women sense this cowardice, as a weakness to pick on something weaker still – usually women, sometimes animals or children (sadist hunters, serial killers and pedophiles). Misogynists get very threatened by historical stories of female success, dismissed as impossible, or the merest prospect of any kind of meritocratic empowerment, feeling unable to complete on a level playing field. The player lifestyle is one of shame and deception. They burnout and end up alone, having lost many friends to the lifestyle too. Don’t pity the predators, they chose their fate. What you sow, you shall reap. Karma is a bitch.

Link between depression and birth control

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/next/body/massive-new-study-links-birth-control-to-depression-for-the-first-time/

I’m not going to bother on this one.

You aren’t stupid.

You can think about these things for yourself.

Like how thwarting MOTHER Nature is impossible.

And taking any psychoactive meds for more than a few years is terrible.

Just like that.

Or how the behaviour it encourages could cause shame, guilt and humiliation, suppressed due to the hypersexual culture and condensed into full-blown depression.

Stuff like that.
