Here’s an interesting article by a British psychiatrist and researcher Malcolm Peet. He’s been investigating the link between mental illnesses and diet for a quarter of a century. Dr. Peet has found that there is more schizophrenia in countries that consume a lot of sugar.

One of the other interesting  conclusions from the study he has made is that people with diabetes and other blood sugar issues seem to be at greater risk of depression in other words that diabetes and depression can co-occur and of course many people who are depressed  will often turn to food for comfort which merely reinforces the problem causing it to spiral further downwards eventually to be seemingly out of control.

It’s a short but worthwhile article and there are lots of other links from it that may prove interesting to people who have diabetes and or depression.
