Mental Health and Diet

A study suggests that changes to diets over the last 50 years can be a key role in the rise of mental illness, and nowadays people generally eat less fresh food and more saturated fats and sugars.  This can lead to depression and memory problems.

Schizophrenia – Epidemiological evidence has shown sufferers have lower levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids, unclear though what changes need to address this.
Alzheimer’s disease – Some studies have suggested high vegetable consumption can protect against the brain disorder.
ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) – Research shown children with disorder are low in iron and fatty acids.

I think people should eat fresh food instead of processed food and refined sugars.  It is so easier/quicker to live on frozen food or TV dinners using microwave oven than making effort to cook some fresh produces.  I still hope that this blog can be a remind to eat healthy and stay healthy, and having fresh food is always the best way.

    Jenny:Sorry.I think it is my natural tendency.Beside, there are many types of blogs.Some write diaries; some post computer tricks; some do web designs; others online journal.I happen to write everything a bit, or shall I say everything that I interest a bit in attempt to show the unique makeups of I myself. *winks

    Joen:Quite the opposite.I feel blessed. XDAs the result and most people who know me can imagine, I have spent much more than in the thing that I love to do all the more, yet as usual, I cannot have it enough, meaning that I want to do it even more. Quite unexpected to you, isn’t it? :D

    What troubles me is that everything works properly except my MSN Messenger. Everything means everything — broswers and other online applications/programs. I did uninstall and reinstall MSN Messenger, yet the problem remains. To me, it is very strange indeed.Anyone here happens to know how to fix the error 80048883? XD

    Today something went wrong with my computer, and currently, I am unable to use MSN Messenger. Yet luckily, I can still connect to the Internet using broswers and other programs. You guys can communicate to me throught email and/or by commenting here. Okay? *winks*winks

    >> I think I am a very different type of person to you.You could be correct… and that’s ok. You are that way and I am this way, the better we could share our experiences. If we both realized that, then the more fun we could have to walk this life together in sharing our views.All we have to do is respect each other, communicate well and give each other willingness to be each other companion.;) how about that?
