    Depression is more common in people who are overweight.

    On the PBS television show Magnificent Mind at Any Age, psychiatrist Daniel Amen, M.D. notes that...

    "One of the most important lessons we've learned from looking at tens of thousands of [ brain ] scans is that what most people think of as mental illnesses... are really, in large part, brain problems."

    Comment: In other words, psychiatric problems such as anxiety and depression are caused by physical problems, biochemical problems, brain problems.

    They are not due to a lack of willpower.

    And thus, often, they cannot simply be "talked" away.
