Grain Brain The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar - Your Brain's Silent Killers, David Perlmutter

29.99 AUD

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.
