Publisher's Summary

This is a FlashBooks book summary for Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth About Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar - Your Brain's Silent Killers by David Perlmutter (author) and Kristin Loberg (contributor).

Book description:

A number-one 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.

Grain Brain is a number-one New York Times best seller and a finalist for a 2013 Books for a Better Life award.

Too Brief! Not worth three dollars.

I wish I had realized how brief this is. It's not worth the money. Just buy the book.

Excellent! Bravo!

I've been seeking for a reasonably entertaining yet enlightening approach to this very serious health issue of contemporary times. I believe it is becoming increasingly evident that grain has a similar health impact as tobacco, promoted by giant corporations with little care or regulation until much of the damage has been done. Some people will get it sooner than others, and others still will live in denial and may even choose a life of being sick and tired, or worse, over making healthy dietary choices. I've read both this book and Brain Maker, but find it difficult to explain it all in brief. This summary nails it! Kudos and keep up the good work! This matter affects everyone since we all know someone who could benefit from this knowledge. What we don't know CAN hurt us. Knowledge is power. Get educated and share it with a loved one.
