Going through my studies I came to the conclusion that the environment and society does have a factor in depression.
Vitamin D is very helpful to the brain because it helps reduces inflation of brain cells, the inflated cells is a heavy cause of depression. Norwegians do not get much vitamin D because of the lack of sunlight during the winter, increasing the rates of depression.
Alcohol does not help depression but in fact it makes it worse. Alcohol reduces your brain’s Serotonin. Serotonin controls the nerves of happiness, if lowered it causes depression. Anti- depressants job is to raise your Serotonin, thats why drinking shouldn’t be mixed with anti-depresants. The amount of drugs and alcohol being consumed is scaring because it is just increasing the depression rate.
