Cover Story (view full-size image): New research from the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging shows that adults who consumed fewer than 3 sources of fruit and vegetables daily have a higher likelihood of being diagnosed with an anxiety disorder. These findings may help to explain why adults in the study with more than 36% of body fat had at least a 70% increased likelihood of anxiety disorder. Other key variables associated with increased likelihood of anxiety disorder diagnosis included female gender, poverty, living with chronic pain, and having chronic health problems. These findings suggest that broad approaches aimed at health behaviors, including diet, as well as social factors, such as economic status, may help to minimize the burden of anxiety disorders among middle-aged and older adults, including Canadian immigrants.
