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 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.
It's my diet guidance
very very informative
