    This has been known for generations and has also been proven before.
    That said depression responds to placebos at high rates, you would think its psychosomatic if we didn't know better :D

    Right. Now how many of us here would take an unknown pill regardless of the positive instructions?

    If someone was trying to get me to take something and being encouraging and cheering me on I would most likely suggest they take it themselves. ( Then I can observe closely)
