Baby famine link to schizophrenia

Babies born during famine are at higher risk of schizophrenia, a study has found.

The Chinese famine of 1959-1961 increased the risk of schizophrenia in later life from 0.84% to 2.15%, Shanghai researchers calculated.

It is not clear whether it is lack of food in general or a lack of specific nutrients while in the womb is important.

The work appears in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Observing a schizophrenic shopping in a supermarket can tell you their brain is lacking in vital nutrients and most importantly, fatty acids. Not because they fill their trolley with healthy foods but because they load up with junk such as chocolate and cakes. To a practised eye, that tells of nutritional deficiency.

So they lack fatty acids? Verrry interesting. I'm confused, I thought people usually don't suffer a psychotic break until they reach mid 30's. Interesting article though. :)
