Diet and Depression
Besides the benefits of looking better and possibly being smarter, there is new evidence of another reason to switch to a healthy diet—reduced depression.

A study by researchers at University College London published in the British Journal of Psychiatry found that those with diets full of processed, fried, fatty, and sugar-laden foods had a 58 percent higher risk of depression. Meanwhile, those who ate a healthy diet reduced their risk of depression by 26 percent.
