While the discussion about diet and depression is a tricky one, there is some evidence that eating fish might lower your chances of feeling down.

A new study showed that those who ate the most fish had a 17 percent lower chance of suffering depression.

The explanation for this correlation isn’t immediately clear, but there are a few theories. Some researchers credit the omega-3 fatty acids, and others count that eating more fish could be a marker of a healthier diet overall. Regardless, it sounds to us like a good reason to add another fish dish to the weekly meal plan.
