Is food an attitude adjuster? A study by British and American researchers found that people who ate more than two servings of fruits and vegetables daily reported higher levels of happiness than those who ate less. Another glad tiding: The more produce you eat, the more your mood can improve. People who ate 7 to 8 servings of fruits and vegetables a day were the happiest of all. While the scientists caution these findings may not demonstrate a cause-and-effect link, they say more research into how produce benefits the brain could prove fruitful.
