Can inflammation cause depression

Inflammation Causes Depression. What Causes Inflammation?

Recent studies in psychiatry have demonstrated that inflammation is a contributing factor in mental depression (Maes, Giorgian-Lavialle et al and Kohler et al). And the connection between the body’s immune system and the individual’s mental state is just beginning to be explored in books like Gut. This theory states that a wayward immune system is actually causing inflammation in the body, which in turn leads to depression. Read more about Inflammation Causes Depression.

Knitting Can Change the World

How Knitting Can Change You…and the World

….so you sit down with a set of knitting needles, some gorgeous yarn, a pattern from Ravelry and you begin to knit. Maybe you have an audio book on, maybe just some Bob Dylan on Pandora. It’s an easy pattern, nothing too complicated or fancy and as the moments pass, your mind empties. You stop thinking about your work, the laundry you have yet to fold, the worrisome fib your child just told you, the argument you had with your spouse that morning.  You just sit and knit, row after neat and tidy row. Your hands are working independently of your mind– you’ve done this pattern before. Knit, knit, purl..knit, knit, purl…A satisfying 4 rows are completed on your sock/blanket/sweater/scarf. It looks so pretty. You made that! Read more about How Knitting Can Change You…and the World

However, the use of triclosan and related chemicals is still allowed in other personal care products, including toothpaste, deodorant, pencils, acne medication and more.  Read more about Triclosan in Toothpaste…Say What?!
