Pasta and depression have been linked in a new health study. The results of this study aren't going to be enjoyed by people who like pasta, because the results show that it can lead to depression. According to a report from Tuesday (Oct. 29), researchers from the University of Eastern Finland put in the work on these findings.
43,000 women that had not been diagnosed had their diets examined and evaluated by researchers. The end result was a conclusion that the women who ate the food became 29 to 41 percent more likely to be diagnosed than those who avoided refined grains, junk food, and soft drinks.
That there has now been an established link between this mental illness and something most people eat every week is a pretty big statement from this study. It was easy to hypothesize that there could be a link between high consumption of pasta and depression resulting from it, but now there is a study that has proven it.
The recommendation from these researchers is that people consume a diet full of fruits and vegetables, which in itself is something that most people are already aware of in their daily lives. The intent here, according to the university, was to reinforce the conclusion that a healthy diet has the potential not only to ward off the illness, but also to prevent it in the first place.
