Eliminate depression ! is that so?

Eliminate depression ! is that so?

         We are now living in a generation that is very conscious of the importance of mental health. Many young people battling with their self images have fallen into the depressions for many years but, today's society recognize these issues and we are working towards advocating for many of those who cannot advocate for themselves. As suicide rates reach new heights, researches have launched a project aiming to eliminate depression. In the past two decades suicide rates have risen by 33 percent. Statistics have shown that only about 65% of adults with depression receive treatments, however only about half get some relief from their symptoms. 

           Scientist taking on this issue figured if they tackle depression on multiple fronts such as; identifying genes that trigger depression, the efficacy of therapies, develop strategies to monitor people with depression to prevent escalated crisis and most importantly continue to encourage openness to those seeking help could be the ultimate strategy to end this fight against depression.This new project will mostly focus on the errant DNA that makes people vulnerable to depression. I think taking the molecular genetics approach to identify specific pathways that makes an individual more vulnerable to depression may be promising results. 

            At first, nailing down the actual gene linked to depression has proven to be elusive for several reasons, severity of symptoms and recurrence vary between men and women which suggest the complexity of this disease. In 2015, two researchers may have found light at the end of the tunnel, they discovered two genetic markers in a study of 2,000 chinese women with severe depression. This study showed that these genes can be found and that this problem is obviously tractable. In addition to this discovery these research will now pursue this issue on a bigger scale, with larger samples and more details. I personally admire the work of these two researchers you can read more about it here. I think if this project in the future may improve many lives.

  1. Do you think doctors will keep treating patients with meds or would they implement a cure? Doctors could use depression as an opportunity to treat patients and make money just like they do with cancer.

  3. I want to thank Dr Emu a very powerful spell caster who help me to bring my husband back to me, few month ago i have a serious problem with my husband, to the extend that he left the house, and he started dating another woman and he stayed with the woman, i tried all i can to bring him back, but all my effort was useless until the day my friend came to my house and i told her every thing that had happened between me and my husband, then she told me of a powerful spell caster who help her when she was in the same problem I then contact Dr Emu and told him every thing and he told me not to worry my self again that my husband will come back to me after he has cast a spell on him, i thought it was a joke, after he had finish casting the spell, he told me that he had just finish casting the spell, to my greatest surprise within 48 hours, my husband really came back begging me to forgive him, if you need his help you can contact him with via email: or add him up on his whatsapp +2347012841542 is willing to help any body that need his help.

  4. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC ( in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.

  5. I'm glad to see someone writing about this issue! Depression is a mental illness that can be passed down through genetics so the longer this issue goes on, the more severe it will become. Finding the genes that cause it will be helpful to scientists and people working on medications for treatment. I think that we should be doing a better job educating younger generations about this growing problem so that they can understand it better and hopefully get help earlier on.
