A case-control study linking depression to a healthy and unhealthy diet

Major depressive disorder is the leading cause of disability around the world. The relationship between depression and dietary patterns has been reported in a few studies but with controversial results. Depressive disease affects roughly 121 million individuals worldwide and is a primary cause of disability. According to the WHO, depression is the fourth most prevalent worldwide burden of all diseases, although it may become the second most common global burden by 2020. For at least two weeks, major depression includes five of the following symptoms: Sad or blue, feeling depressed; increased or decreased sleeping; lack of interest or enjoyment; increased or decreased appetite with weight change; feelings of worthlessness or guilt; agitation, unsettledness, or slowness; low energy difficulty concentrating; and a sense that life is worthless or suicidal actions.
