I'm really glad to see articles like this, because it makes me think that maybe, just maybe, we're starting to really look at this anxiety issue, which is so common today, it's just sad. I think there are a lot of things that need to be addressed, primarily mental tools to be used to "live rightly", and thereby cut anxiety (a mental illness) from the root, but it is good to address a healthy diet as well (although I think the diet is less important than mental understanding)

Well, it?s obvious that anxiety is one of the major problems in these days, and every kind of person can suffer it even children, so we must take this into account and try to prevent it instead of curing it. This guide is pretty good since it teach us what kind of foods we must eat when having these problems and some recipes that seem delicious too.
