Women who eat less meat suffer depression: StudyMarch 22nd, 2012 - 11:33 pm ICT by IANS
London, March 22 (IANS) Women who eat less than the recommended amount of meat in their diet are more likely to suffer from depression and anxiety, according to a study.
They are twice as likely to be diagnosed with mental health disorders, researchers in Australia have found.
The study of more than 1,000 women showed that completely switching to protein such as chicken and fish is not as healthy as many believe, the Daily Mail reported Wednesday.
The study, published in the journal Psychotherapy Psychosomatics, also advised women not to exceed the recommended amount of red meat either.
