The Mediterranean dietary pattern (MDP) continues to show many health advantages. Adherence to the MDP in more than 10,000 young adults in Spain has demonstrated its benefit in protecting from depression. After 4.4 years of follow-up, those in the top three quintiles of dietary adherence to the MDP had the lowest risk for depression. The investigators also noted that higher consumption of fruits and nuts, legumes and fish were separately associated with lower depression risk.
