Subsequently, these individuals began to show symptoms of depression until antibiotics returned the state of the microflora to normal. The researchers then concluded that a high-fat diet could cultivate certain groups of intestinal bacteria that cause depression causing neurochemical changes. New research has moved away from the study of intestinal bacteria, and revealed the processes that occur in the human brain. At the very beginning of Continue Reading
