Publisher's Summary

This is a summary of David Perlmutter's Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar - Your Brain's Silent Killers.

A New York Times best seller - the devastating truth about the effects of wheat, sugar, and carbs on the brain, with a four-week plan to achieve optimum health. 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. And not just unhealthy carbs, but 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 offers an in-depth look at how we can take control of our "smart genes" through specific dietary choices and lifestyle habits, demonstrating how to remedy our most feared maladies without drugs.

With a revolutionary four-week plan, Grain Brain teaches us how we can reprogram our genetic destiny for the better.

Not nearly scientific enough

An association does not prove causation. This summery starts of with too many assumptions that do not appear to have been scientifically proven. This annoys too much to keep listening. Maybe the full book is better, but I don't have the will to find out.
