From #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. Perlmutter, the devastating truth about the effects of wheat, sugar, and carbs on the brain, and a 4-week plan to achieve optimum health.

In Grain Brain, renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, MD, blows the lid off a finding that's been buried in medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain. Even so-called healthy carbs like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, decreased libido, and much more.

Groundbreaking and timely, Grain Brain shows that the fate of your brain is not in your genes, it's in the food you eat. Dr. Perlmutter explains what happens when your brain encounters common ingredients in fruit bowls and bread, how statins may be erasing your memory, why a diet high in "good fats" is ideal, and how to spur the growth of new brain cells at any age. And his revolutionary 4-week plan will show you how to keep your brain healthy and sharp while dramatically reducing your risk for debilitating neurological disease -- without drugs.

Featuring a blend of cutting-edge research, real-life stories of transformation, and accessible, practical advice, Grain Brain teaches you how to take control of your "smart genes," regain wellness, and enjoy lifelong health and vitality.

I'm rating/commenting only on the reader in the audio book. I disliked his style and didn't want to listen any longer. I'll read this book instead.

Honestly, I didn't know what to think! I read the China Study before this one and that book stresses the importance of a high-carb diet--the exact opposite of this one! So I'll contradict both doctors: neither diet is the better diet. Every person is different and saying that ALL people should follow this ONE diet is like saying that ALL the locks of the world can be unlocked by ONE key. Some people do better with more fat/protein in their diets and other are at their optimum when they eat mainly carbohydrates. People should do what makes them be at their best.
