OBJECTIVE Key biological factors that influence the development of depression are modified by diet. This study examined the extent to which the high-prevalence mental disorders are related to habitual diet in 1,046 women ages 20-93 years randomly selected from the population. METHOD A diet quality score was derived from answers to a food frequency questionnaire, and a factor analysis identified habitual dietary patterns. The 12-item General Health Questionnaire (GHQ-12) was used to measure… 
Empirically derived dietary patterns in relation to psychological disorders
TLDR
Recommendation to increase the intake of fruits, citrus fruits, vegetables, tomato and low-fat dairy products and to reduce the intakes of snacks, high-fat Dairy products, chocolate, carbonated drinks, sweets and desserts might be associated with lower chance of psychological disorders.
Psychological disorders and dietary patterns by reduced-rank regression
TLDR
It is found that “healthy,’ “fish and poultry,” and “transitional” dietary patterns have inverse significant relationship with odds of psychological disorders, but prospective studies are needed for causal conclusion.

TLDR
In this study, those with better quality diets were less likely to be depressed, whereas a higher intake of processed and unhealthy foods was associated with increased anxiety.
Is there any relationship between dietary patterns and depression and anxiety in Chinese adolescents?
TLDR
Data from Chinese secondary-school adolescents validated findings from adult populations and dietary patterns should be considered as important predictors of depression and anxiety among adolescents in further studies.

TLDR
Dietary patterns featuring a low intake of processed foods and/or a high intake of whole plant foods were associated with a reduced risk of depression and perceived stress.

TLDR
A significant association between DPI and mental health in women is found and future studies are needed to confirm these findings.

TLDR
The hypothesis that magnesium intake is related to depression in the community is supported by the present findings and may have public health and treatment implications.

TLDR
A diet high in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, poultry, and fish and low in refined grains, potatoes, and red and processed meats may lower risk of CHD.
Diet Quality Is Associated with Higher Nutrient Intake and Self-Rated Health in Mid-Aged Women
TLDR
The Australian Recommended Food Score can be used to rank mid-aged women in terms of diet quality and nutrient intake and is associated with indices of self-rated health and health service use and can beused to measure future associations with health outcomes and mortality.
Diet quality and major chronic disease risk in men and women: moving toward improved dietary guidance.
TLDR
The AHEI predicted chronic disease risk better than did the RFS (or the HEI, in previous research) primarily because of a strong inverse association with CVD.
Depressed mood and n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid intake from fish: non-linear or confounded association?
TLDR
The findings suggest that higher levels of n-3 EFA intake from fish are associated with lower levels of depressed mood, but the association disappears after adjustment for age and social deprivation, and after inclusion of n -3 E FA intake from supplements.
Dietary fat intake and the risk of coronary heart disease in women.
TLDR
It is suggested that replacing saturated and trans unsaturated fats with unhydrogenated monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats is more effective in preventing coronary heart disease in women than reducing overall fat intake.
Prospective study of major dietary patterns and risk of coronary heart disease in men.
TLDR
It is suggested that major dietary patterns derived from a food-frequency questionnaire predict risk of CHD, independent of other lifestyle variables.
