Asking your doctor for another antibiotics prescription? How just ONE course raises the risk of depression

  • Researchers at Tel Aviv University found that a single course of antibiotics boosts the risk of depression by around a quarter
  • And taking between two and five courses raises the risk by nearly half, they reported in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
  • Experts say disrupting gut bacteria harms the way brain cells communicate

Scientific proof in labs

In the subscriber section I give examples of lab experiments where changes in gut bacteria make fat rats got thin, angry rats became cool, and even a disturbing story where the bacteria spread to mice by cats can actually stop the mice being scared of them. Still think there's not a link between your gut and how you feel?
