Western diet makes for bad mood: a tale of two (more) studies.

The evidence implicating diet in mood continues pile up, with two recent high profile clinical studies in 2009. I may have mentioned them already in previous posts, but I wanted to put them here, together. A hypothesis generated from this research is that diet and other post-WWII correlates may have something to do with the cohort effect in depression (an increase in the cumulative lifetime rates of major depression with each successively younger birth cohort, JAMA,
1992 "The changing rate of major depression . . .").
