Depression: Fast Food Blues

Unsaturated fats cause depression
Fast foods and finished products are sold to us as modern foods. However, the unsaturated fatty acids produced by the fat-sclerosis partial industrial plant are linked and found in popular snacks, such as potato chips and fried donuts, for various diseases of civilization. In particular, it seems that the growing cases of depression in the world food, in many cases, fast food trans fats, while the natural fatty acids of omega-3 and anti-inflammatory nutrients can collide with depression.

Depression: Fast Food Blues

Even the healthiest people among us had one or another meeting with fast food during their lives.

You may remember many things with a horrible and boring feeling, finished pizza, fries, donuts and the company you left behind. There is no comparison with the remarkable energy produced by a nutrient-rich authority in Vienna!

The sad reality is that more and more people in the western world eat daily from these unprocessed foods.

Sooner or later, the fact that human beings resign themselves to regular exposure to chemical components, such as preservatives, flavor enhancers, artificial flavors, colorants and decomposers, saturated fatty acids and unsaturated fats will not surprise one. Therefore, the “junk food blues” seems to eliminate depression in many consumers.

With 120 million people worldwide depressed, scientists are following the relationship between eating habits and mental disorders.

Study warns about the depression associated with diet, especially, the trans-inflammatory fat that results from the hardening of vegetable oils found in many artificially produced foods.

Depression due to unsaturated fatty acids
Scientists from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Granada universities confirmed a higher risk of depression of fast food and the consumption of commercial bakery products. The six-month study, published in the spring of 2012 in the Journal of Public Health Nutrition, served nearly 9,000 people evaluated.

People who ate well-fed foods throughout the study period were 51 percent more likely to develop depression.

The study warned the director of the Almudena Sánchez-Villegas of hamburgers and fries, croissants, cakes and similar industrial and consumer products. The greater the consumption, the greater the probability of the disease.

Even the consumption of small amounts of these foods is associated with an increased risk of depression,
Then the researcher

Among the group of highly processed ingredients and common additives in fast foods, researchers attribute unsaturated fatty acids to depression. Because these industrial grease will improve some of the inflammatory substances in the body (interleukin 6 protein and C-reactive) and destabilize neurotransmitters in the brain, which ultimately affects mood.

The famous American physician Andrew Weil is convinced that depression caused by inflammation in the body, can occur due to unsaturated fatty acids, among other things:

Fat in fast food can certainly contribute to depression, since it is inflammatory.
Unsaturated fatty acids: a hidden attack on health
In addition to the pro-inflammatory properties and therefore depression, already five grams of trans fat per day to develop a path to heart disease in the future.

The level of cholesterol and industrial fats have a negative multiplier effect, since they not only increase the “bad” bad cholesterol, but also reduce HDL cholesterol “good cholesterol”. Other scientific studies show similarities between unsaturated fatty acids and patients with colorectal cancer, type 2 diabetes and allergies.

Is not sufficient! According to research conducted by Harvard University, unsaturated fatty acids inhibit the hormonal balance of women. The 2 percent unsaturated fat in the diet can actually double the risk of infertility in women.

This observation led by Dr. Jorge Chavarro in the effect of blocking trans fat molecule, which is important for ovulation and fertilization. But even if the desire of the child is fulfilled, the risk of unsaturated fat in the uterus is not forbidden. Prenatal nutrition can irritate a child to be born in its development.
