“People express an intuitive sense that ‘of course mental health is influenced by nutrition’. But the intuitive sense doesn’t satisfy the scientist’s or clinician’s desire to understand when, how, and why this might be so. Nutrition and mental health are each difficult to describe and measure precisely. Combined, the study of the interactions between aspects of life is even more complex.”   (from the Introduction of Nutrition and Mental Health.)
