A plant-based diet is good for both body and mind. Diets heavy in fruits, vegetables, legumes, and nuts, and low in processed meats were found to be associated with preventing the onset of depression, according to new research. Consumption of sweets and meats was found to increase the risk. More research is needed to find out exactly how these foods affect the mind.

“Fruit and vegetables aren't only good for a healthy body; they protect your mind too,” Science Daily, www.sciencedaily.com, September 16, 2015.
