New research finds Mediterranean diet reduces risk of depression

"Also, the link to inflammation as a plausible mechanism to explain a link between diet and mental health is highly tenuous".

They discovered that those who followed the Mediterranean Diet were a third less likely to develop depression than those who followed other diets, according to CNN, which earlier obtained the report.

Published in Molecular Psychiatry, a review of 41 studies published within the last eight years found that sticking to a Mediterranean diet rich in fruit, vegetables, grains, fish, nuts, and olive oil appears to have mood-related benefits. "This relationship goes beyond the effect of diet on your body size or other aspects of health that can affect your mood", said Camille Lassale of UCL, the study's lead author.

A diet high in saturated fat, sugar and processed food was associated with an increased likelihood of depression.

"Whilst eating healthier is good for many reasons, we need more evidence before we can say plant-rich diets can improve mental health", he said.

"Increasingly, more general practitioners (GPs) are recommending that their patients try to make sensible diet and lifestyle changes as part of a holistic approach to the management of chronic diseases because we know it may have a range of a positive effects on our patients' physical and mental health", Professor Helen Stokes-Lampard, the chair of the Royal College of Global Positioning System, said.

Five of the studies taken into account by the researchers looked at the the impact of an inflammatory foods diet on mental health in 32,908 adults across the world.

The results mean "there are now strong arguments" for diet to be considered as part of the treatment of mental health, co-author Tasnime Akbaraly said.

Although we live a long way from the lapping shores of the Mediterranean, it's still possible to reap the benefits of a coastal diet at home.
