Cabbage Therapy: Cheap and Effective Mental Healthcare

Chinese teenagers take cabbages for walks as an effective treatment for depression and loneliness. 

"The youngsters are able to meet other people who also walk the green foods.

One student says, "If I see someone else its easy to start up a conversation with them about their cabbage, and they are better than dogs as they don’t bark, or start fights with other cabbages, it doesn’t even need feeding, or leave a mess on the pavement."

Chinese psychiatrist Wen Chao said: 'The idea is simple – you feel as lonely and as simple as a cabbage, so you begin to act like one and befriend one.'" 

Of course this is happening in China. Because there’s no affordable healthcare in the U.S.
