Dr. Cliff Arnall, a British researcher from Cardiff University, said that, today, January 18 is 2010’s most depressing day. And that story gets front page on MSNBC?
The cure for this depression is supposedly "light therapy:"
Therapy with specially designed bright lights—which are sold commercially for about $100-$200—is the treatment of choice for SAD and can also work in less severe cases. Sunlight is believed to raise serotonin levels and pace the biological clock—reduced exposure to sunlight during the winter consequently lowers levels of serotonin and other important neurotransmitters, which can be associated with depression.
Maybe its just a case of MLK lite!
