    Nice! Looking at the picture… so if I eat a lot of cheese I wouldn’t get anxious. True! I am getting anxious when there is a last slice of cheese in my fridge :-)

    This article should be taken with a grain of salt. Many people believe that diet could fix any mental health problems, ADHD, Autism, Depression, Anxiety… It may help but it is absurd to believe that diet alone can magically heal your disease. You need to see a mental health professional, do assessment of your condition and therapy. In many cases of anxiety you should also take medications. See this link for in-depth review of anti-anxiety medications:

    What do you think about fish oil or Omega 3 supplements against anxiety? I was taking them for 2 years, but recently read that they can cause cancer, so I am not sure whether to continue… what do you think?

    Hi Alicia,
    I think you are talking about the research study published by the Journal of the National Cancer Institute in June 2013… correct? If I recall correctly, the study found the link between Omega 3 fatty acids and PROSTATE cancer, so it’s less relevant for women. Besides, there is a lot of criticism regarding this study, many prominent researchers claim that the study was inconsistent and wasn’t properly conducted.
    Omega 3 fatty acids are actually recommended by American Psychiatric Association and National Institute of Health as effective against depression and anxiety.
    Yet, it is better to be on the safe side, so I would suggest using supplements with high EPA to DHA Ratio (higher than 4) and don’t go over 2g per day. One thing to remember: you should always supplement fish oil with antioxidant such as Vitamin E – if you don’t, oxidation can cause cancer.
