Junk Food Blues: How Are Depression and Diet Related?

Your diet and your mental health can be related more than you think. There are several studies that stated that people who eat a lot of meat, sweets, fried food, refined sugars, and high-fat dairy are more likely to show symptoms of depression. Luckily, it can all be fixed or improved with some healthy eating habits. So, here’s how junk food affects your depression and a good clean diet can cure it.

What came first?

Depression or a bad diet? What causes what? Let’s break it down. Depression is often pushing sufferers to adopt unhealthy eating habits which can result in pretty common dietary patterns associated with depression like reduced appetite, binge-eating on sugary and fatty foods and skipping meals.

Diet can also be a good indicator of your risk and levels of depression. People who often eat a lot of junk food, fat and carbs are at more risk of developing symptoms of depression. On the other hand, diets like the Mediterranean which contains a lot of vegetables, lean meat, fish, olive oil, fish and antioxidants is connected to better mood and emotion control. Plus, this diet is low in calories, so it’s a perfect choice for those trying to shed extra pounds and get into shape.

What to munch on

While there are diets specifically made for boosting one’s mental health and neurological activity, you don’t necessarily need to see an expert. If you adopt the Mediterranean way of eating (which is rich in groceries available all over the world) you can reduce many of your symptoms and alleviate your mood.

While there are many foods great for human health, vitamins, minerals and nutrients from protein are especially important for the support of the brain. Make sure to keep your nutrients high by taking plenty of antioxidants from raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, and apples. Ensure your vitamin B levels are optimal by eating at least two to three eggs a week and preparing lean meat like poultry, fish, and oysters. Whole grains, avocado, and milk are also rich in vitamin B.

Omega-3 fatty acids from fish, nuts, and seeds will also ensure optimal brain function, especially when accompanied with selenium from whole grains, nuts, seafood, and organ meats. Another thing you can add to your diet is CBD oil. If you buy your product from respectable suppliers, CBD for anxiety can be easily mixed with food and beverages you make at home. For instance, add it to your smoothie, coffee or baked goods and let it positively influence your appetite, pain, sleep, stress responses, mood, motivation and more.

What to avoid

Certain substances harm your mental and your physical health, so they should be eliminated from your diet. Luckily, the list isn’t huge and you can always find some healthier alternative to replace these harmful foods. If you suffer from depression, do limit your intake of alcohol and caffeine. Another “drug” that people with depression often eat too much is sugar. Minimize your intake of candy, cake, and other sweets and stick to dark chocolate to satisfy your sweet tooth. Highly-processed foods, as well as high-fat dairy, should also be consumed in minimal amounts.

Trump Orders Simpler Path for Genetically Engineered Food

NEW YORK—President Donald J. Trump wants to make it easier for genetically engineered plants and animals to enter the food supply, and he signed an executive order this past week directing federal agencies to simplify the “regulatory maze” for producers.

The move comes as companies are turning to newer genetic engineering techniques that make it easier to tinker with the traits of plants and animals.

Greg Jaffe, biotechnology director at the Center for Science in the Public Interest, said the impact of the executive order would depend on the details of how it is carried out by federal agencies. Simply deregulating could make people lose confidence in genetically engineered foods, he said.

“There needs to be an assurance of safety for those products,” said Jaffe, who was among those briefed by government officials on a call before the order was announced.

The order also noted that the government’s policies should urge trading partners to adopt similar regulatory approaches. Even if the US loosens regulations on genetically engineered foods, Jaffe noted companies could be hampered by regulations overseas.

Last week, the US Department of Agriculture proposed changing its regulations in a way that would mean much of the genetically modified corn and soy is grown in the US today would not necessarily have been subject to special oversight.

Crops produced with newer gene-editing technologies also wouldn’t automatically be subject to special oversight under the proposed rule, unless they posed a risk as plant pests.

Companies have said that gene-editing allows them to more precisely alter plants and animals and that what they’re doing could theoretically be achieved through conventional breeding.

But Jaydee Hanson of the Center for Food Safety said gene editing could also be used to make more significant changes, including those that would never happen in nature, and said oversight is necessary.

But the fish was technically reviewed as a new animal drug, process companies say is inappropriate for genetically engineered animals for food.

AquaBounty’s fish eggs only recently cleared a final regulatory hurdle, and are not yet ready for sale in the United States.
