Happiness Is … A Fruit And Vegetable Diet, Study Finds

July 8, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
British and Australian researchers have determined that the more fruits and vegetables you eat, the happier you’ll become, and fairly quickly. The study, which tracked 12,000 randomly selected Australian adults who kept food diaries, also measured their psychological well-being (i.e., happiness). Psychological benefits of eating up to eight portions of fruits and vegetables a day were found within two years. On the other hand, protective benefits against cancer from a healthful diet may take decades to accumulate. The increase in life satisfaction among the participants was “equivalent to moving from unemployment to employment,” the researchers said.
