I can’t comment too much about the articles since I’ve only recently read them, but I do know that a healthy diet is a great defense when dealing with PTSD, Anxiety, TBI and depression.  Here’s what my friend added in: “(Apparently the depression link was strong enough to prompt them making the recommendation for all DoD personnel-they had done some sort of study of suicide victims in the military and found extremely low levels of the omega 3 chemicals across the board, so that prompted the study the second article talks about).”
