Debilitating brain disorders are on the rise - from children diagnosed with autism and ADHD to adults developing dementia at younger ages than ever before. But a medical revolution is underway that can solve this problem: Astonishing new research is revealing that the health of your brain is, to an extraordinary degree, dictated by the state of your microbiome - the vast population of organisms that live in your body and outnumber your own cells 10 to one.

Genetics and lifestyle are thought to be the two most important determinants of good health. But that is not the whole story. We have a second genome, our gut bacteria, that sets the dial on our bodies. Unlike our DNA, we can influence the gut bacteria, or microbiota, to optimize all aspects of our health.

This book could have easily be ten times shorter and still provide the same information. If you look for a good book on this subject go and read Brain Maker, which is in my opinion superior book in every aspect compared to this one.

Many of us have long been told that fat makes us fat, contributes to heart disease, and generally erodes our health. Now a growing body of research is debunking our fatphobia, revealing the immense health and weight loss benefits of a high-fat diet rich in eggs, nuts, oils, avocados, and other delicious superfoods. In his new book, best-selling author Dr. Mark Hyman introduces a new weight loss and healthy living program based on the latest science and explains how to Eat Fat, Get Thin.
