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 thirty-day plan, Grain Brain teaches us how we can reprogram our genetic destiny for the better.

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.
