Renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, MD, blows the lid off a topic that's been buried in medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain.

It's not just unhealthy carbs that are doing the damage: even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more. Dr. Perlmutter explains what happens when the brain encounters common ingredients in your daily bread and fruit bowls, why your brain thrives on fat and cholesterol, and how you can spur the growth of new brain cells at any age.

He also offers an in-depth look at how you can take control of your 'smart genes' through specific dietary choices and lifestyle habits, demonstrating how to remedy your most feared maladies without drugs.

Including a revolutionary 30-day plan to help you cut grains from your diet, Grain Brain will show you how you can reprogram your genetic destiny for the better.

This was my 2nd copy for a relative as I thoroughly enjoyed it myself. I was astounded, shocked and in some cases horrified at how misled we have been. Common misconceptions about what's considered "bad food", myths of whats good results debunked, this book turned my misconceptions upside down. Full of great statistical data brought out in an entertaining and engaging way, it made it a very inspiring read. A definite call to action to protect our brains, not just our bodies from 1st world induced debilitation and degeneration.

This is a topic I am interested in, but I did find the book a little bit hard to read at times. There is a lot of scientific and medical information, and the author is obviously passionate about the topic, but as a lay person I found some parts a bit boring to read and I lost interest in a couple of places. Overall, though, I think the book's content is extremely informative and interesting, and I feel I gained a lot from reading it. I think I will pick the book up again to re-read some parts.

              I love this book! It will blow your mind!
              Very informative and all backed up with evidence.
              I've already started changing things about my lifestyle and feeling better for it, I can't wait to get started on the 4week program. I'm even thinking of purchasing the cook book.
              I just wish I had this book a few years ago before my mother died of a brain tumour and it may have prolonged her life a bit.

                What I really appreciate about book are the connections made between gluten and hormones. Cortisol, especially. Also, if you're wanting to know more about treating your brain better, this book touches on " Brain Health", extraordinary! Great read. I actually carry this book in my handbag still.

                    This book is a real eye opener to the effects that certain types of food has on our body and most importantly to our brain. Very informative, yet easy to understand. The research is mind blowing and compelling. This is definitely a must read for all, young, old, sick or healthy.
