Across countries and cultures, there is clear evidence that a diet higher in plant foods such as vegetable and fruits, and lean proteins including fish, decrease the chances of chronic diseases. But, more fish and vegetables as a way to treat depression? Yes. New search, published in the BMC Medicine journal, finds that a Mediterranean style diet which is high in vegetables, lean proteins, healthy fats (extra olive oil on the salad please) are associated with reduced risk of depression whilst a diet with more process foods and high sugar increases depression.
