Unprocessed: How the Food We Eat is Fuelling Our Mental Health Crisis
Finishes at: Saturday 04 November 11:30 AM
Our mental health is in crisis. British adults are more likely than our European neighbours to report depression. Nutrition has more influence on what we feel, who we become and how we behave than could ever be imagined. It affects everything from our decision-making, mood and intelligence to aggression and violence. Unprocessed reveals the fascinating and surprising role of food and nutrients in brain development: from how the food eaten during pregnancy influences the size of the baby’s brain to how nutrient deficiencies change your personality.
This eye-opening book raises awareness of the known links between diet, brain, behaviour and mental health, and calls on those in positions of power to act.
