People who eat a Mediterranean diet — rich in vegetables, fruits, nuts, whole grains and fish — are less likely to develop depression, a new study suggests.
Researchers in Spain analysed the reported dietary intake of over 10,000 healthy study participants and followed them for a median of 4.4 years.
After this time, 480 new cases of depression were identified, with those most closely adhering to a Mediterranean diet having a 30 per cent reduced risk of developing the condition (hazard ratio 0.69, 95 per cent confidence interval 0.50–0.96).
