I only caught a part of Professor Edward Bullmore being interviewed about his new book on BBC Breakfast today and thought it might be of interest to some on this forum. I have no views on this and don’t suffer from depression so am not commenting.
This is one of the comments regarding the book which links auto-immune conditions to depression and other neurological problems.
‘A great read, this thought provoking book presents inflammation as the major driver of depression. A real page turner that raises important questions for us all, including, how we should practise medicine going forwards and can we restart Research and Development using this paradigm? Highly recommended’. -Dame Sally Davies, Chief Medical Officer for England
Book is called The Inflamed Mind
