The Army's New Smoothies Are Supposed To Help Troops Avoid Suicide

• Business Insider Allison Churchill

The Associated Press reports the study, being conducted by the Veterans Administration, Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), and the National Institutes of Health, on behalf of the Army, will build on previous research that proved people with low omega-3 levels face more mental disorders.

Nearly 350 servicemembers have already taken their own lives this year, a number the VA says is almost double the civilian population.

Some veterans already receiving mental health care will get smoothies high in omega-3s, while others will receive placebos. If the effect proves to be strong enough, the military may consider giving all soldiers supplements of the fatty acids to ward off depression.

Spiked with aluminum and fluoride more likely.  I would not trust them for anything
