Junk food not good for body or the mind

In a new study published in the British Journal of Psychiatry, research suggests that eating process food can increase risk for depression, More specifically, people with diets high in sweetened desserts, fried food, processed meat, refined grains and high-fat dairy products are more likely to become depressed over time. Also, it was found that a ‘whole food’ diet of vegetable, fruits and fish actually lowered the risk of depression.

So, it’s always interesting how a study has to ‘officially’ tell us what we probably knew already. We’ve known that junk food doesn’t help our physical self, so how could it have ever helped us mentally?

Here are some articles I found about foods that help with your mood:
