Consuming highly refined carbohydrates increases risk of depression
Refined foods such as white bread, white rice, and soda trigger a
hormonal response in the body to reduce blood sugar levels. This response may also cause or exacerbate
mood changes, fatigue and other symptoms of depression.
Greater consumption of dietary fiber, whole grains, vegetables and non-juice fruits was associated with decreased
risk. This suggests that dietary interventions could serve as treatments and preventive measures for depression. Further study is needed to examine the potential of this novel option for treatment and prevention, and to see if similar results are found in the broader population.
