Junk Food = Depression

In a Public Health Nutrition study of almost 9000 adults, those who consistently consumed "fast food," such as hamburgers and pizza, were 40% more likely to develop depression than the participants who consumed little to none of these types of food. Even small quantities of fast food were linked to a significantly higher risk for depression. The depression risk rose steadily as more fast food was consumed. Participants who often ate commercial baked goods, such as croissants and doughnuts, were also at significant risk.
