Do Bad Foods Put Us in Bad Moods? Can You Eat Your Way to Happiness?
An interview with health educator Stuart Tomc, CHNP, former advisor to the World Health
Organization about a missing link in our diets that may give insight to depression

Do you routinely feel down in the dumps or experience a constant uneasiness, worry or fear? If so, you are not alone. Depression and anxiety affect more than 50 million people in the US, and those numbers are rising dramatically. The World Health Organization predicts by 2020 "depressive disorder" will affect more people than cancer, arthritis and diabetes, making it the 2nd leading cause of disability, behind heart disease.

Why are mood disorders soaring across the nation? Stuart Tomc, health educator and former consultant to the World Health Organization, says one major reason for America's emotional meltdown can be traced to the absence of a single nutrient: a nutrient lacking in 99.9 percent of American diets. "The meals we eat in restaurants and in our homes contain little or no omega-3 essential fatty acids,” says Tomc. “And this dietary deficiency has triggered a variety of unpleasant mental and emotional problems for tens of millions of children and adults."

Tomc says that omega-3 began rapidly disappearing from the dinner table about 50 years ago when ranchers stopped feeding cattle omega-3 rich grass and began feeding them grains. Adding to the problem of adequate omega-3 intake is the fact that these nutrients are destroyed by heat, so baked, fried or barbecued meats and vegetables provide no omega-3 benefits to those who eat them. "Coldwater fish is a great source of omega-3,” says Tomc. “But eating enough fish to produce a change in mental outlook is hard to do.”

While mineral-depleted soils, vitamin-depleted plants and a mile-long list of toxins blanketing the food chain are all important factors degrading one's mental health, because of the composition of the brain, insufficient dietary intake of the omega-3 fats is especially debilitating, says Tomc. "The brain and nervous system are comprised mostly of fat,” says Tomc. “So their function becomes impaired to the degree than they do not get adequate amounts of high-quality dietary fats, specifically the omega-3 fats.”

When asked for a list of foods that trigger bad moods, Tomc says it is far easier to name the foods that promote good moods. "Look for food products that list omega-3 as an added ingredient, eat plenty of green leafy vegetables and coldwater fish and you'll be feeding your brain what it needs to be happy,” says Tomc. "To correct a lifelong omega-3 deficiency and help beat back depression and anxiety, pharmaceutical grade fish oil supplements are recommended."

With over twenty years of experience in the field of nutritional medicine, Stuart Tomc, Certified Natural Health Professional, is one of North America's leading authorities on dietary supplements. He is a respected former consultant to the World Health Organization and integrative physicians worldwide. Serving in the capacity of educator and media spokesperson for dietary supplement maker Nordic Naturals, Mr. Tomc has given thousands of lectures and interviews on both TV and radio discussing the latest available scientific research on natural alternative therapies for bringing about increased levels of health and wellness.
