Is the "Stone Age" sobriquet your own marketing idea, or have others simply been applying it? I'm still trying to decide whether I like it - but I think all this publicity is great!

Now I really need to go join that gym and start getting more aerobic exercise...

P.S. Check that link to TLC - doesn't seem to be going through properly.

The "Stone Age" label is not mine, though I have to say it's much more accurate than the "Caveman" label that editors keep wanting to put on the story (including the recent story in AARP Magazine). I tend to prefer terms like Pleistocene and 'environment of evolutionary adaptedness' (EEA), but people seem to eschew those for obvious reasons!

Also, thanks for the heads-up on the faulty link; it's now fixed.

depression, the big killer, like weapons of mass destruction. I've known several people who have suffered from major depression, one of my closet friends ended up in hospital for 2 years.

Deb -

Thanks for the kind words! (And for the nifty post on your blog.)

Rodger -

Yes, depression is a big killer, accounting for the majority of the one million people worldwide who lose their lives to suicide each year.

Doctor, I heard a psychiatrist make the claim on a radio talkshow, that there's an 85 percent success rate, when it comes to anti-depressants. What are the real numbers?

Thanks alot,

It is a great effort, I think more studies should be made for depression, one method can work for someone but for others not, there should be some ground basis in this condition.

It looks very promising, depression is always a risky situation.

Well actually my psychologist speak a lot about this, many people don't like the change, they are afraid of change, because the humans are afraid of what they don't know, but the change can't be evaded.
