NEW CURE FOR DEPRESSION

Depression has been, and continues to be, a pervasive medical ailment that disrupts life, ruins careers and marriages, and may end in suicides.

Lifetime prevalence is one-in-three in women and one-in-five in men. Yearly prevalence is two to six percent. Worldwide expenditure is estimated at $29 billion in 2020.

Several new medications for depression — antidepressants — enter the market every year each promising to wipe depression off the face of the earth. They end up causing more depression by pauperizing people.

Scientists at the University of the Internet have discovered a new cure for depression. In an RCT — Randomly Controlled Trial — for treatment of depression, the improvement in the arm on antidepressants was ten percent. The improvement in the arm treated with money was 100 percent with a p-value of < 0.0001.

The medical scientists at the University of the Internet recommend that spending 50% of the money wasted on antidepressants will cure 70% of depressed individuals without the need for medications.
Reason: Poverty is the number one cause of depression.

Big Pharma as usual is vehemently opposed to diverting money from them to treat depressed individuals.

Expect a big fight between Big Pharma and the Governments of the leading world economies. Meanwhile, post Covid-19 pandemic, more people fall into depression as the rich get fabulously richer and the poor get fantastically poorer!
