As With Cardiovascular Disease, A Poor Diet Seems To Be Associated With Depression

January 3, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Spanish researchers have looked at the evidence linking diet and depression, finding that fast food increases the risk of depression, while the Mediterranean diet reduces the risk. They note that depression is similar in many ways to heart disease. Both are associated with low-grade inflammation, endothelial dysfunction and poor lipid (fat) profiles. The researchers caution, however, that the evidence doesn’t prove causality, only an association. Long-term clinical trials are needed to probe deeper into the problem.
