Why are you cunts incapable of looking at this with any nuance? Who said it’s “reducible to their gut”? When I say it’s a factor, it does not mean any and all mental health issue is directly a result of poor gut health. It simply means exactly what I said: it’s a factor. I swear to god, you two are capable of thinking only in terms of 0 and 1.
Cool story, bro.
Everything can be a factor for getting a depression. Even your forums posts here can be a reason for some people to lose faith in humanity and get a depression. But that's not what i was talking about. I'm just saying that gut bacteria don't cause or heal depression and that this is backed up the fact that there are zero known cases worldwide, where gut bactera either caused or healed a depression.
Additionally i explicitly said that gut bacteria can be factor, but not because of "HEY BUDDY I'M BACTERIA FUKIN' UP UR BRAIN", but because of the symptoms that can reinforce the development of a depression. So yes, we're literally saying almost the same thing, but you just don't understand this. And please, for god's sake, read (or let your caregiver read it out loud to you) what i've wrote before you hit the reply button.
