FAB - Report on the Links Between Diet, Mental Health and Behavior
Associate Parliamentary Food and Health Forum, The Links Between Diet and Behaviour
The influence of nutrition on mental health, Report of an inquiry held by the Associate
Parliamentary Food and Health Forum January 2008.
The Associate Parliamentary Food and Health Forum has issued a report which looks at the scientific evidence on whether mental health and performance can be affected by what we eat, and explores how this may be happening. It concentrates particularly on the role of omega-3 fatty acids (whose benefits are promoted relentlessly and often inaccurately by the food industry) but recognises that other nutrients forming part of a healthy diet also have a significant role.
