Veg Diet for Healthy Mood

A new study finds a correlation between vegetarian diets and good moods.

Researchers at the Department of Nutrition at the Arizona State University have found that those who follow a veg diet might be able to add “mental health” as another reason to ditch meat. In a survey of 138 healthy men and women, researchers found that those who followed a vegetarian diet reported “significantly less negative emotion” than omnivores, despite having lower levels of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, unsaturated fats whose intake has been linked to mood in numerous studies. While fish is considered the major dietary source of fatty acids, they are also present in flax seeds, chia seeds, and walnuts.
