Congratulations to Threads Lab team members, James Kotuah and Carol Vlassoff for their newly published paper on the effect of female sex and food insecurity on self-reported mood disorder among Canadian adults published in BMC Nutrition.
Food insecurity is a growing and concerning phenomenon in Canada and may influence mental health, particularly among females. The study examined the joint effect of female sex and food insecurity on mood disorders among Canadians and found that food insecurity was associated with an increased prevalence of mood disorders, especially in younger females. Interventions that facilitate access to food while being cognizant of the socioeconomic vulnerabilities of females may have substantial benefits for the prevention and management of mood disorders.
