When I heard that there were headlines saying fast food can trigger depression, I shrugged my shoulders. Oh well. I don’t eat fast food anyway. But wait! What’s this? The study also includes “commercial baked goods (doughnuts, cakes, croissants).” I practically live off those! From PsychCentral:
The results also showed that those participants who ate the most fast food and commercial baked goods were more likely to be single, less active and have poor dietary habits (eating less fruit, nuts, fish, vegetables and olive oil). It was also common for individuals in this group to smoke and work over 45 hours per week.
Well, yes, that does sound like a rather depressing way to live. Do they watch crappy TV too? Sigh.
