Brain scans spot early signs of depression, anxiety in newborns

Feeling down in the dumps, or suffering a bad case of the blues every so often is normal. Bouts of anxiety in response to stressful situations are also normal. However, ongoing feelings of anxiety and depression can be a sign of a mental health disorder, which can develop at any age. A recent study published in Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (JAACAP) has found signs of anxiety and depression can be spotted as early as birth.

Using functional MRI scans, researchers at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, spotted brain connectivity patterns linked to the increased risk of early symptoms related to depression and anxiety, such as excessive shyness, nervousness, or separation anxiety by age two. At birth, specific brain connections may be responsible for mental health problems later in life. Read more

Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me (Psalm 51:5). The wicked are estranged from the womb; These who speak lies go astray from birth (Psalm 58:3). Who can bring what is pure from the impure? No one (Job 14:4)! Again, science has to catch up with God’s word. Of course, depression and anxiety is written in. You cannot get something clean and pure from someone who is in the process of dying while giving birth. We are born to die and then face God’s judgment.

The answer that God has given man against the sin written within from the beginning is Jesus. Demons flow from generation to generation and from people to people to kill, steal, and destroy. Do you want deliverance? Then make a b-line  to Jesus. Confess your sins and repent and believe the gospel of Jesus Christ.
