Eating veggies may be good for the mind and the body.
A new study found that the “DASH diet, a diet of vegetables, fruit and whole grains was linked to lower rates of depression. The study looked at older people over the course of six years and found that people eating vegetables and avoiding red meat were eleven percent less likely to suffer depression.
It’s no surprise that the more processed foods and sugars you scarf down, the higher your depression risk. Previous studies have told us the same thing, so this may be the time to embrace leafy green!
The research was discussed at the American Academy of Neurology's Annual Meeting in California.
