Fruits and Veggies Boost Happiness?

Feeling down? Have a banana. Researchers found a link between healthy eating and mental health.


Researchers at the University of Warwick in the United Kingdom studied the eating habits and well-being of 80,000 people. Here’s what they found: “Mental well-being rose with the number of daily servings of fruits and vegetables, peaking at seven servings a day,” according to HealthDay.

Perhaps this is the secret behind all those Woman Laughing With Salad stock photos. The researchers defined a serving as 80 grams, or 2.8 ounces.

As always, more research is needed – “it did not prove a cause-and-effect relationship,” just shows that happiness, mental health, and healthy eating are linked.
