Well first off, doctors do not know of a singular cause for depression because one does not exist. It seems that a hormonal imbalance is often present, but environmental factors, aging, genetics and circumstance can also cause depression. There are however, 'triggers' that can cause people to have depression like the loss of a loved one or drug use for example.

The discussion around HFCS is that consuming this and other so-called 'toxic' foods including trans and hydrogenated fats can interrupt normal cellular brain function and damage brain cells and tissues. There is continuing research on this and the other effects of these foods, but safe to assume that ingesting too much HFCS (which, by the way is in a LOT of foods-you have to read the labels to make sure you don't see HFCS listed as an ingredient...or better yet...avoid eating things that need labels...) is not good for you. Plus, having any sort of stimulant (which sugar is to some extent and HFCS mimics sugar) can heighten the ups-and-downs felt with depression, and no one wants that!

I personally have completely eradicated the substance from my diet and not only do I feel physically better, but I'm slimmer than years ago when I did consume this, and other, processed substances.

The prevalence of ADHD in Europe is about the same as it is in the U.S., roughly 1 and 20 children. In 2003, Stephen V. Faraone analyzed the findings of 50 studies around the world and concluded that the prevalence of ADHD was at least as high in non-U.S. countries as it was in this country. This was especially true when the DSM-IV was used to make the diagnosis.
