Let's reflect on the key ideas from the week.

Key ideas and principles

The latest research provides valuable evidence on biological mechanisms associated with mental health.

The processes involved in the mechanisms of diet in mental and brain health favour a complex approach to health, which can explain why some special diets facilitate better health management.

However, this complexity can also feed myths and misconceptions about diet and nutrition. Critically analysing the evidence is important when making an informative choice.

Being informed about the latest research and recommendations is also valuable as evidence in this dynamic space grows.
