Position Statement: Diet Both Influences Risk For, Outcomes Of Mental Health Disorders

Medscape (9/27, Davenport) reported that a new position statement “released by the International Society for Nutritional Psychiatry Research” and published online Sept. 25 in the journal World Psychiatry, “emphasizes that there is epidemiologic, basic scientific, and clinical evidence to show that diet both influences risk for and outcomes of mental health disorders.” Because “a number of nutrients are linked to brain health,” the position statement also “calls for more robust research to determine the clinical impact of dietary changes and to identify biomarkers.”
