Grain Brain

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

By David Perlmutter & Kristin Loberg
Narrated by Peter Ganim / 9 hours 18 minutes

A #1 New York Times bestseller—the devastating truth about the effects of wheat, sugar, and carbs on the brain, with a 4-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 4-week plan, GRAIN BRAIN teaches us how we can reprogram our genetic destiny for the better.

Grain Brain is a #1 New York Times bestseller and a finalist for a 2013 Books for a Better Life award.

“A tour de force that is destined to save many lives. As I read this important and well-written book I found myself nodding my head vigorously in agreement at practically every page. [Grain Brain] gives us what we need to know to be well again. Please read it.”

“A galvanizing call to arms against a gluten-heavy diet. . . . Perlmutter's credentials as a board-certified neurologist and American College of Nutrition Fellow make him a uniquely qualified voice in the debate about which foods are best for the brain and body.”
