A May 2024 study highlights the profound impact that diet quality can have on mental health and brain structure. The study "Adherence to unhealthy diets is associated with altered frontal gamma-aminobutyric acid and glutamate concentrations and grey matter volume: preliminary findings" delves into this complex relationship, focusing on how diet influences neurochemistry and brain morphology. The study looked at 30 adults divided into two groups: those who ate a healthy Mediterranean

The study, titled "Association of Long-term Exposure to Air Pollution and Dementia Risk," explores the biological mechanisms linking air pollution to dementia,

In a fascinating study published in Nutritional Neuroscience, the researchers explored the effects of unhealthy diets on brain chemistry and structure. The preliminary findings suggest significant associations between poor dietary habits and changes in key brain areas. The study focused on the adherence to unhealthy diets and its correlation with the concentrations of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and glutamate in the frontal lobe of the brain, as well as grey matter volume.
