Eat your veggies!

Hi! I just read this and wanted to share a paraphrase from a recent article in The Lancet, the world’s leading independent general medical journal:


Psychiatry is at an important juncture….the emerging and compelling evidence for nutrition as a crucial factor in the high prevalence and incidence of mental disorders suggest that the diet is as important to psychiatry as it is to cardiology, endocrinology, and gastroenterology.  Evidence is steadily growing for the relation between dietary quality (and potential nutritional deficiencies) and mental health, and for the select use of nutrient-based supplements to address deficiencies....We advocate recognition of diet and nutrition as central determinants of both physical and mental health.



Sensible “take away?” This mama says eat your veggies! (And have some fruit and yogurt for dessert!)
