Low Fruit and Vegetable Intake Is Associated With Depression Among Korean Adults in Data From the 2014 Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey

Depression is less likely to occur in individuals on high fruit and vegetable diet.

This study focused on the relationship between the consumption of fruits and vegetables and the incidence of depression in Korean men and women. A total of 4,349 men and women took part in this study and provided information relating to their diet and mental health via questionnaires. 

Researchers noticed that increased intake of vegetables and fruits decreased the prevalence rate of depression from 6.4% to 2.5% in men and 11.4% to 6.6% in women. The results of this study support the ingestion of generous portions of fruits and vegetables as a viable preventive measure against depression.
