Do scientists miscommunicate to the public or is it journalists mis-reporting on findings?

Here's another popular press article about the same research (see below). I think this one does a much better job of explaining the science to the layperson.

Is Junk Food Making You Depressed?

The popular press loves nutritional neuroscience. Especially when it comes down on the "junk" food industry. Makes for good human interest stories, I guess. I like it because it educates the layman, even though journalists don't always get it 'right'.

Here's an interesting story about a journal article due out soon:

I added a few links to this group today. Found them in Patrick Holford's new book New Optimum Nutrition for the Mind. It is written for the layperson, but so far it's good.

Please everyone suggest more relevant links for this group. Thank you.

Starting this group has motivated me to start working on my blog again after years of inactivity. I'll be focusing on recent publications and news regarding nutrition and depression, neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's and Restless Legs Syndrome.
