Hi CS,

Can bad diet be a sole cause for depression? (particularly constant consumption of sugars)

Never. Never ever. Depression is NOT caused by any aspect of diet. Now, a high intake of sugars can cause other problems, including obesity and complications of diabetes, and is not a good idea in terms of general health ; but it does not cause depression
