Food Blues

Feeling a little depressed lately? Paranoid? Maybe we should be a bit more paranoid about the food we are consuming.

A study from the Mental Health Foundation in the UK reports that "Changes to diets over the last 50 years may be playing a key role in the rise of mental illness, a study says." Less fresh food and more saturated fats and sugar is leading to depression and memory problems. And addressing mental health problems with diet changes is showing better results in some cases than drugs or counseling. Plus they warn that unless there is a radical overhaul of food and farming policies, there won't be healthy and nutritious foods available in the future for people to eat.

Eat those organic vegetables!
