I have just finished reading a new book called Grain Brain – The Surprising Truth About Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar – Your Brain´s Silent Killers written by renowned neurologist David Perlmutter. This book is already on the bestseller list and I hope it stays there for a long time. This is a very important book, and the word needs to be spread. The following is an excerpt from the book:

There are plenty of perpetual myths about the basket of brain degenerating maladies that includes Alzheimer´s: It’s in the genes, it’s inevitable with age, and it’s a given if you live into your eighties and beyond. Not so fast.

I´m here to tell you that the fate of your brain is not in your genes. It´s not inevitable. And if you´re someone who suffers from another type of brain disorder, such a chronic headaches, depression, epilepsy, or extreme moodiness, the culprit may not be encoded in your DNA. It´s in the food you eat. Yes, you read that right: Brain dysfunction starts in your daily bread, and I´m going to prove it. I´ll state it again because I realize it sounds absurd: Modern grains are silently destroying your brain. By “modern”, I´m not just referring to the refined white flours, pastas, and rice that have already been demonized by anti-obesity folks; I´m referring to all the grains that so many of us have embraced as being healthful – whole wheat, whole grain, multigrain, seven-grain, live grain, stone-ground, and so on. Basically, I am calling what is arguably our most beloved dietary staple a terrorist group that bullies our most precious organ, the brain. I will demonstrate how fruit and other carbohydrates could be health hazards with far-reaching consequences that not only will wreak physical havoc on your brain, but also will accelerate your body´s aging process from the inside out. This isn´t science fiction; it´s now documented fact. The information that I will reveal to you is not just breathtaking; it´s undeniably conclusive. You´ll be shifting how you eat immediately.

Follow Dr. Perlmutter through other topics like cholesterol, statins, healthy fats, obesity, fasting, sleep, how to avoid a small brain, which lab works to ask for, which supplement to take and several interesting patient case studies. At the end of the book there is a complementary 4-week-plan with recipes.
