British study: A fat reach diet increases the risk of depression

A diet containing large quantities of prepared meals and fats increases the risk of depression, according to a British study published Monday.

Researchers at University College London have also found that eating plenty of vegetables, fruit and fish can prevent the onsets of depression.

The team compared the participants - all employees - some of which have a menu consisting largely of natural foods with  a second group of people eating mostly fat reach industrially cooked dishes, and sugary desserts. The lifestyle was also taken into account (smoking, sports etc.).

The study showed that the first group had 26% less risk of falling into depression than those who had a diet primarily of industrial foods. These were exposed to 58% higher risk of developing depression.

The results of this research have been published in the British Journal of Psychiatry. This phenomenon can be explained by the large amount of antioxidants contained in fruits and vegetables. Research has already shown that high levels of antioxidants could be associated with a lower risk of depression.

Moreover, the high level of polyunsaturated fatty acids may also play a role in preventing depression.

This study was conducted among 3486 people with an average age of 55 years. Each participant answered a questionnaire on dietary habits and a self-rated depression.
