Estrogen-Depression Connection?


I would greatly appreciate your comments and discussion on a provocative statement, that women's depression in later life is largely caused by estrogen deficiency at menopause. This statement is made in this new book, and if correct, this may suggest a simple approach to depression treatment:

The Estrogen-Depression Connection: The Hidden Link Between Hormones & Women's Depression
by Karen J., Ph.D. Miller and Steven A., Ph.D. Rogers (Paperback - May 2007)

From book description:

"Research has shown a strong connection between estrogen levels and depression throughout a woman's lifetime. We now understand that abrupt hormonal changes can take a toll on women's moods and even cause serious depression. But the good news is that there is a lot women can do to moderate the effect of these changes."
