According to Healthline.com, there are an estimated 121 million people worldwide who suffer from depression, affecting as many as 1 in 10 Americans, and diagnoses are growing at an alarming rate. Depression is also shown to be correlated with higher rates of other negative health outcomes, including obesity, heart disease, and stroke, as well as social factors including higher rates of unemployment, divorce, sleep disorders, lack of education and lack of access to medical insurance.

Today on the SOTT Radio Network's Health and Wellness Show, we take a look at the latest research on depression including its causes and strategies on dealing with it. The mainstream view on depression is that it is a result of a "chemical imbalance" that can be rectified with medications. But is this really the whole picture? How do infections, toxic load, diet and social factors contribute to depression? What can an individual do for themselves or loved ones to try to get on top of this crippling condition?

Join us Fridays at 10 am EST for the Health and Wellness Show, where we expose the lies and emphasize the truth about health in our modern world. With us, as always, will be resident animal health expert Zoya, with her weekly Pet Health Segment.
