These ingredients could be CAUSING mental illness
New research links unhealthy diet to serious mental illness
Alex Reid here with your Monday roundup.
If bad food has ever put you in a bad mood, it turns out there could be a powerful scientific explanation.
Because we're learning how diet DIRECTLY impacts the brain.
In fact, some unhealthy ingredients could actually lead to mental illness, according to new research from the Loma Linda School of Public Health.
And this isn't the first time we're seeing this, either:
Jim E. Banta, PhD, MPH, lead author of the study, said the results are similar to previous studies conducted in other countries that have found a link between mental illness and unhealthy diet choices.
Nor should the main culprit shock you:
Increased sugar consumption has been found to be associated with bipolar disorder, for example, and consumption of foods that have been fried or contain high amounts of sugar and processed grains have been linked with depression.
This is a common theme we see over and over again:
Physical health IS mental health, and vice versa.
So if you want to feel good mentally, take care of your body physically.

And finally today, we have a report on the massive shift in public opinion when it comes to legalizing marijuana.
No doubt the acceptance and value of medical marijuana is playing a large role.
