    Columbia University Medical Center has revealed that a diet high in refined carbohydrates may increase the risk of developing depression in postmenopausal women.

    Menopause puts women at risk for depression due to changes in hormones and so, based on the new research, it is suggested to minimize intake of refined carbohydrates to lower one’s risk.
