Coffee May Prevent Depression, Scientists Say

BBC News article this morning….



I’m leaning more towards the ideas I wrote about earlier about it being the fluctuations in blood vessel tone which are responsible for the differing symptoms of mental illness. So if smoking offers some protection by maintaining a level of artificial constriction thus allowing less room for fluctuation, is the caffeine in coffee working via a similar mechanism?

Ah, it gets even more complicated! I’m sure the answers are there somewhere though. It’s just too tempting to look for a eureka moment rather than a collection of events and circumstances.
