Depression link to folate levels29th June 2007
Scientists from York University have found that the addition of folic acid to food might help treat depression.
The research team reviewed 11 previous studies. They found that depression could be linked to low levels of folate.
Dr Simon Gilbody, the study's leader, said: "Although the research does not prove that low folate causes depression, we can now be sure that the two are linked." The team has said a large-scale trial is necessary in order to investigate their findings.
