Are you telling me that the phrase "Happy Meal" is false advertising?

Apparently, eating fast food puts you in a bad mood . . . at least according to an author named Rachel Kelly who wrote a new book called "The Happiness Diet".

She says that it's because of all the trans fats in fast food, especially the fries.  They mess with the levels of omega-3 fatty acids in your body, which can lead to you being pessimistic, aggressive, and depressed.

And fast food isn't the only food that she says will bum you out . . . basically everything that tastes good will.

Some of the other foods that she says will put you in a bad mood are:  Diet soda . . . sugary cereal . . . prepackaged donuts . . . shortening and margarine . . . salty snacks . . . and canned food.
