Junk Food Depression

A six-year study shows that eating foods high in saturated and trans-fat increases the risks of depression.

A new preventative medicine study shows that a diet high in saturated and trans-fat increases the risk of depression. Researchers at University Las Palmas in Spain studied more than 12,000 men and women who were initially free of depression. In the six years the study took place, 657 new cases had been diagnosed, finding that participants who ate mostly fast food, industrially-produced pastries, and whole milk products had 48 percent increased risk of depression. With separate studies showing that preschoolers’ preference for high fat, sugar, and salt foods is linked to fast food and soda brand knowledge, health experts say that families should focus on reducing the consumption of junk foods early on.
