Following a diet of processed foods increases risk of depression, a study published in The British Journal of Psychiatry says.

The researchers analyzed data from nearly 3,500 participants, with an average age of 55 years, and nearly 26% were women.

These participants completed two types of scheme: based on vegetables, fruits and fish on the one hand. The others consumed processed foods like sweet desserts, grilled food, processed meat, and products containing large quantities of dairy products.

Five years later, researchers assessed the participants' depression based on data obtained from a clinic specializing in such pathologies. Those who followed the Mediterranean diet better got the lowest rates of depression.

Conversely, those who consumed mostly the processed food products had higher rates of depression. The researchers therefore conclude that a Mediterranean diet consisting of fruits, vegetables and fish, prevents the risk of depression. On the other hand, a processed food products diet increases the risk of depression.
