The tomato and depression

December 4, 2012

Eat tomatoes, only a few times a week could halve the chances of suffering depression, experts said.

The researchers analyzed the records of mental health and dietary habits of at least 1,000 people, including men and women aged 70 years or more.

The results, “Eating tomatoes two to six times a week were 46 percent less likely to suffer depression than those who ate less than once a week”.

But, according to the study, other fruits and vegetables do not have the same benefits.

Eat healthy foods, such as cabbage, carrots, onions and pumpkins seem to have little or no effect on psychological wellbeing.

Up to 20 percent of people suffer from depression at some point in their lives, affecting women more than men.
