Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth About Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar - Your Brain's Silent Killers is an urgent appeal for people everywhere to reconsider their beliefs regarding the cause of increasingly common brain diseases such as Alzheimer's, dementia, and other neurodegenerative disorders. Author David Perlmutter issues a call for his listeners to recognize that human fate does not decree that each of us reach the end of life in a fog of dementia as the brain naturally declines with age. Instead, the cause of cognitive and mental decline lurks in the conventional modern diet in the form of gluten, carbohydrates, sugars, and grains. A life of brain impairment does not have to be a genetic or age-related inevitability. It can be prevented with a commitment to dietary changes.
The introduction of grains and gluten to the human diet was disastrous. The medical community has typically overlooked this apparent danger.
