Depression and Poor Diet Leads to Heart Attacks in Women

We have known for some time that depression in women increases the risk of heart attacks.  Now it is evident that a diet deficient in fruits, vegetables, and fiber makes that association even more powerful.  If a woman has depression, even if treated fairly successfully, it is very important that extra attention is paid to a healthy diet.  Otherwise her risk of heart disease increases substantially.
