    Interesting article...

    I've read that systemic inflammation can be a hidden cause for many ailments...

    Wow very interesting. I am always reading books and articles about depression but wasn't aware of this.

    I wouldn't doubt that most ailments are a result of inflammation. Cut gluten as a first step.

    Seemed like that would be too obvious, since it was my first thought. :dunno

    It would be nice to see the papers reporting this data and NOT some news story. It goes without saying that what is posted on news sites is supposed to get the most hits and not necessarily correct. Some of the data in that paper from above do NOT reach statistical significance as correctly pointed out by the authors. The argue that even though not significant the data indicate a trend. I whole heartedly disagree. A trend would reach statistical significance IMHO. In no way do the authors implicate inflammation as the cause of depression but maybe part of the pathology in a select group of individuals.

    I did not read it carefully, but it was the only actual data I could find that supports the article which didn't cite any primary research.

    What did you not like about the study?

    The study used a COX-2 inhibitor. Aren't most COX-2 inhibitors not approved in the US?

    Some people in medicine believe that every illness is based on/because of inflammation.

    Celebrex is approved in the US. Vioxx was the one that was withdrawn.

    This is probably a more accurate statement.
