Topic:  Article was read aloud.  A study indicates that systemic Inflammation in the body affects the brain and can be the cause of some forms of depression

Choosing what you eat can help or hinder inflammation which in turn affects depression.

The anti-inflammatory diet was discussed which is "clean eating" (fruits and vegitables, lean meats, etc...

Foods high in Omega 3 fatty acids reduce inflammation
Flaxseed oil/seeds
Chia seeds
Salmon/mackerel/herring/whitefish
Fish oil
Nuts (walnuts)
Basil/oregano/Cloves/Majoram
Broccoli
Spinach
Foods high in Omega 6 actually increase inflammation
Omega 6 in cornfed cattle is 9x higher compared to grass fed cattle
Same with hens and their eggs
