Depression Can Stem From Diet

Depression is a common symptom of PCOS but those of us with both conditions may be able to improve mood by eating a better diet.
 
A new study suggests a diet high in processed food increases the risk of depression. What is more, people who ate plenty of whole foods like vegetables, fruit and fish actually had a lower risk of depression, say researchers at London’s University College.
 
The diets of 3,500 middle-aged civil servants were compared with the incidence of depression five years later, the British Journal of Psychiatry reported.
 
Those who ate the most whole foods had a 26% lower risk of future depression than those who ate the least of this type of food. By contrast people with a diet high in processed food had a 58% higher risk of depression than those who ate very few processed foods.
 
Physical and mental health are closely linked. But it is not yet clear why some foods may protect against or increase the risk of depression. However, scientists think there may be a link with heart-damaging inflammation, which is often linked with PCOS and brought on by a poor diet.
