HealthDay (3/11, Preidt) reports that research published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests that “depression may increase the risk of poor nutrition and obesity among Americans receiving food assistance.” Investigators followed “more than 600 people who were the main food shoppers in low-income families living in ‘food deserts’ in Pittsburgh.” The study found “a strong link between depression, poor nutrition and high body-mass index.”
