More on the inflammatory omega-6 arachidonic acid in chicken and eggs that may impact mental health via a cascade of brain inflammation in: • Plant-Based Diet & Mood (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/plant...) • Improving Mood Through Diet (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/impro...) • Inflammatory Remarks About Arachidonic Acid (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/infla...) • Chicken, Eggs, and Inflammation (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/chick...) • Chicken's Fate Is Sealed (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/chick...) For other natural treatments for mental illness, check out: • Saffron vs. Prozac (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/saffr...) • Lavender for Generalized Anxiety Disorder (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/laven...) • Gut Feelings: Probiotics and Mental Health (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/gut-f...) I got some feedback from those that previewed this video on DVD (http://nutritionfacts.org/2013/07/11/...) that my explanation of MAO inhibition was a bit much (too complicated). I think there are different camps of NutritionFacts.org viewers. Some that just want to know the bottom-line, and others that are fascinated by the underlying mechanisms and are eager to learn the underlying biology (the "why" not just the "what" and "how"). I'd be interested in everyone's feedback. Do these more in depth explanations add or detract from the educational value? Have a question for Dr. Greger about this video? Leave it in the comment section at http://nutritionfacts.org/video/fight... and he'll try to answer it!
