Econ Advice: Eat More Vegetables

I've only read the abstract, but this paper says eating fruits and veggies makes you happier. Actually, to be clear, they do the rare honest thing and don't claim it's causal, they just identify an interesting and apparently robust partial correlation.

So, clearly, it's causal. Be vegan, be happier. I'm sold.

  1. Having read only the abstract as well, I got this: "Well-being peaks at approximately 7 portions per day." Didn't say it plateaus there. People who get more than 7 portions a day are less happy than people who stay at the optimal number? Interesting.
