What, me worry?

Men’s Health magazine says Tampa is one of the most depressed cities, while El Paso is one of the happiest.

Here’s why.

Researchers claimed to have found higher lithium levels in the drinking water of El Paso compared to Dallas. In El Paso, based on state mental hospital records, Dawson informed the press, “there are almost no mental illness admissions.” Admissions to state hospitals were seven times higher where the lithium level was lowest in the water supply.

Dawson’s amazing conclusion is quoted in the July 7, 1973, National Observer by Diane Shah: “The lithium calms people in El Paso, makes them more cheerful, and gives them a more tranquil attitude toward life.”
