Unipolar major depression (42 972 DALYs*)



And the pharmaceutical companies are cleaning up on this one. I don't know what else can be done, every thing from holistic thinking to pharms, to psychoanalysis is out to treat it, unless one is very poor, one can be treated. Although from a few studies I read a few years ago, the poor have a lower depression rate than the upper classes, and a far lower suicide rate.

Iron deficiency anemia (12 511)
