Fish consumption and suicide: is there a connection?


Depression is a mental disorder seriously and jointly responsible for the most suicides. Since I already covered, protected the intake of fruits, vegetables and natural antioxidants with depression associated found. The researchers, that “It would be possible to avoid depression or mitigate its negative effects by dietary intervention.”

But not as fast. Cross-sectional studies are snapshots in time, so that we don’t know “If a bad food habits the development of depression or if poor food intake caused the depression.” Depression and the treatment of depression can affect appetite and food intake. Maybe people who feel only crappier food crappier, rather than vice versa.

Fish consumption and suicide: there is a connection?

We need a prospective study (study of the time spread) is where we start with people who are not depressed, and for several years to follow. In the year 2012 we have taken such a study, more than six years that. As you’ll see in the video below, those who have higher levels of carotenoids in their blood, which is considered a good indicator for the fruit and vegetables, had a 28 percent lower risk for depressed during this period. The researchers found that low blood levels of this healthy phytochemicals can predict the development of new symptoms of depression. But what about suicide?

In the world, 1 million people commit suicide every year. Of all European countries Greece, you have lowest rates of suicide. Maybe it’s the climate, but it may have to do with the food. Ten thousand people were persecuted for years, and those who follow a pattern of more Mediterranean diet were less likely to receive the diagnosis of depression. What is the regime that is protective? It was not the red wine or fish; Fruit, nuts, beans and even higher plant at a rate of animal fats, which appeared protective. In contrast, significant negative trends for the consumption of milk and meat production were observed.

A similar protective dietary pattern was found in Japan. High consumption of vegetables, fruits, mushrooms and soy products was associated with a prevalence of a decrease in depressive symptoms. Healthy eating habits are not characterised by high consumption of fish and seafood. Similar results were found in a study of 100,000 Japanese men and women followed for 10 years. There was no evidence of a protective role of increased fish consumption or the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA against suicide. In fact, they found a significantly elevated risk of suicide at male drinkers with Omega-3 Forte seafood consumption. This may have been coincidence, but a similar result was found in the Mediterranean Sea. Fish consumption of basic high with a rise of in consumption were associated with an increased risk of mental disorders.

One possible explanation would be the mercury contamination in fish. Could the accumulation of mercury compounds in the increase of the body, the risk of depression? We know that mercury in fish can cause neurological damage, associated with an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease, memory loss, and autism, but also depression. As a result, can “The harmful effects of mercury in fish due to the increase in the risk of suicide in people with a high consumption of fish.”

Harvard University large cohort studies found similar results. Hundreds of thousands have been for 20 years and found no that evidence pursued taking fish oil or eat fish reduces the risk of suicide. There was even a tendency towards a higher mortality rate suicide .

which consumption of fish to treat depression? If we have implemented all tests to date, the EPA and DHA seems long-chain omega-3 more effective than sugar pills. We earlier thought, Omega-3 supplementation has proved useful, but several recent studies have tipped the balance in the other direction. It seems that “[n] at the beginning of the efficacy of treatment observed in the published literature may be due to publication bias,” which means that tests showed no advantage tends to be not not at all will be published. So, what saw you were a number of positive studies, but only, because a lot of these negative were buried.
