Chuck Norris: Help Fight Depression By Eating More Of THIS

A fish a day keeps the doctor away?

Maybe not, but a World Net Daily blog post by martial artist and health advocate Chuck Norris draws a link between eating more fish and lowering depression.

Chuck cites a new, large-scale study that shows the beneficial effects of omega-3 fatty acids in fish for battling the chemicals in your brain that are involved in depression. But it's certainty not the only dietary direction that can help.

Chuck also cites another study that researched Mediterranean diets — high in produce, low in processed meats — and observed a link between higher consumption of nutrients and fewer incidents of depression.

Obviously food isn't the only factor in depression, but Chuck thinks it's worth considering. He's also seen a recent improvement in America's eating habits. He's observed:

1. Higher fruit consumption among kids and adults.
2. Lower consumption of sugary, fiber-less fruit juices.
3. Significant decline in sales of soda and sugary orange juice.
4. Big boost in popularity of kale and other dark, leafy greens.
5. Greater consumption of other vitamin C-rich fruits and veggies like papaya, strawberries, and bell peppers.

Chuck wonders, "Could we be on the cusp of a new reality of food consumption, that is not only shaping our eating habits for the better, but also sending the dominant food companies scrambling to catch up and to adjust their business model accordingly? Big food manufacturers are already reacting to these changes by simplifying their ingredients, launching new healthier lines of product and acquiring existing health-based brands."
