Scientists from the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in Spain established that foods eaten daily have a direct impact on mental health. This was written in TopNews.
Specialists reached the conclusion after an extensive study involving nine thousand people living in Spain. During the month, the scientists monitored the mental characteristics of the subjects.
Scientists have found that the following foods have a destructive effect on human psyche:
- sweet confectionery products;
- fast food;
- baked products other than home-made.
These foods lead to aggression, depression, anxiety, and irritability.
How soon will the symptoms appear?
Based on the experimental results, changes in the psyche were recorded about a month after regular consumption of this food. The negative impact is linked to the effect of trans fats, which are poorly absorbed by the body and can accumulate in the internal organs. In addition, these products increase blood cholesterol level and provoke obesity.
What you should eat
Scientists say that fresh vegetables and fruits can bring a sense of ease, emotional balance, and serenity.
