Fried Food like french fries are linked to depression: While greasy french fries may be a comfort food for many, eating this delicious food too often has negative effects that could lead to depression. However, experts who study nutrition say that they aren’t sure if this is the cause for sure. The study evaluated 100,000 people over 10 years. There were cases of depression found in those who consumed a large amount of fried food over white meat. “The human component of this study may indicate just what it purports: that higher intake of fried food increases the risk of anxiety/depression,” said Dr. David Katz, a lifestyle medicine specialist who was not involved in the study. However, this could also turn the other way around, for people with anxiety/depression might turn to this fried comfort food to make them feel better. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and consuming the right food can lead to a happy and longer life. Consuming less fried food may be helpful to mental health overall.
