    It's terribly distressing news.

    Thanks for the fascinating link!
    I work in an Army hospital. We are doing lots of studies on the correlation between low omega 3 levels and suicides--there is a direct link!

    Wow, it's AMAZING to hear they're actually on the right trail with this! Too bad the answer is an isolate in a questionable smoothie instead of real food, but it's at least the right track, instead of just counseling or ignoring it!

    I'm not sure if it said it in the article I linked, but when they analyzed the omega 3 in hundreds of suicide victims, nearly all were severely deficient. When they analyzed the omega 3 in people who were at very high risk of suicide, but didn't do it--they all had high levels of omega 3.

    Yes, they really need to push getting Omega 3 from real food! I eat fish every day, oysters 3+ days a week...guess where I got that tip from...

    Wow that's pretty fascinating that there is a link between the two. It kills me that the government will feed us "crap" just to save $$. And it's even evident in our dining halls on base. Most of the crap they push in there is really crap. The only decent thing is the salad bar and the omelet station (that uses real eggs).

    Okay I saw this interesting line in BG9 last night, otzi. Any chance this indicates the connection between DHA & suicide is correlation, not causal?

    The ethanol and acetaldehyde [released by entrenched candida] will also help hasten the brain by allowing more inflammation into through the blood brain barrier and into the brain. When this occurs we see depression, the loss of DHA (fish oil fat), phospholipids, ceremides and sphingolipids in the brain and function slowly diminishes overtime.
    Of course, two more decently likely possibilities are that typos confuse the real meaning of this, or that I misunderstand its implications entirely.
