Pasta is a lot of people’s favorite foods but researchers say it could have a negative effect on your mental state.

A new study suggests that pasta messes with your waistline and your brain.

The study focused on women who drank soft drinks, ate red meat and refined grains, like pasta, white bread and crackers, every day for 12 years.

At the end of the trial, those women were up to 40 percent more likely to have been treated for depression than those with a greener diet.

Researchers are now looking for the link between refined grains and depression.
