Depression may have more to do with
our “gut feelings” than we thought.

'After Robin William’s death in August 2014, the issue of depression was thrust front and center into the media. As sufferers and psychologists weighed in, scientists looked for more clues as to why people develop depression in the first place. 

Is there some biological mechanism, aside from heredity, that’s at work, here?

Though we still have a long way to go before we understand how depression takes hold, we are breaking new ground in one area of research—gut health. Recent studies have connected the anxiety in our heads to imbalances in our guts, with promising potential solutions that may have a lot of people feeling a lot happier.'
