Depression affects people's ability to smell, according to new research from Tel Aviv University.

"Our scientific findings suggest that women who are depressed are also losing their sense of smell, and may overcompensate by using more perfume," said Dr. Yehuda Shoenfeld. "We also believe that depression has biological roots and may be an immune system response to certain physiological cues."

The same mineral imbalance that causes depression causes lack of sense of smell.

Usually as simple as increasing zinc.
