Although some research in the past suggested that eating too much meat is also harmful, now a new study has shown that people who avoid eating meat are more likely to have depression.
According to research published in the medical journal ‘Science Direct’, long research conducted in Brazil showed that people who eat vegetables fondly are twice as likely to suffer from depression.
For the study, experts asked more than 14,000 adults about food, including people between the ages of 35 and 75.
Later, the experts interviewed all the volunteers and checked their body mass index (BMI), other tests were also done and their economic and social conditions were also assessed.
Experts also took into account the lifestyle of the volunteers and concluded that depression is generally suffering from people who do not eat meat despite deliberately expanding.
According to experts, people who eat vegetables were twice as likely to suffer from depression, but it is not completely clear that the suffering of depression is only due to eating vegetables and avoiding meat.
According to experts, people who are generally living a good life at the economic and social level and they avoid eating meat are more likely to be depressed.
That is, in a way, people who are unable to eat meat due to inability, it becomes difficult to check depression in them, because such people also suffer from socio-economic problems.
Experts explained that it cannot be completely said that eating only vegetables is the cause of depression, but research has found evidence that vegetarians are more prone to depression than people who do not eat meat.
According to experts, this is probably due to the lack of vitamins and iron found in meat, the brain is not active and suffers from depression.
