Abstract

 Background: Just under 60% of workers have a strong feeling of stress at their work or occupation due to psychological social factors from problems at work, including interpersonal relationships.

 Objectives: In practice, the complex contributions from lifestyle factors such as nutrition and eating habits were investigated for their relationship with depression.

 Method: A test group of 153 male skilled workers was screened using the CES-D depression test and their diet was examined. The “depressed,” the “depressive tendency,” or “no depressive tendency” groups were formed based on the CES-D scores and the relationship was examined between depression and blood pressure and a biochemical examination of blood and dietary intake.

 Results: There were significant difference in age and the high CES-D score groups had significantly high hemoglobin and hematocrit values. They also had significantly smaller amounts of dietary cryptoxanthin, calcium, fruit, and dairy products.

 Conclusion: This cross-sectional study showed significantly smaller amounts of dietary fruit, and dairy products in the high CES-D score groups. By considering the interaction of nutrient intake, we would like to examine and analyse eating patterns, from more than a single food type.
