I must also say that I have been blown away by the book “Grain Brain” after having had the pleasure to review a copy. It’s got a great set of recipes in the back, but the information presented by Dr. Perlmutter is truly poignant for us all to hear. In this day and age where neurological and various psychological issues abound, it’s refreshing to find a neurologist so interested in diet that he’s willing to say something that goes against the mainstream.
This book is currently on several best seller lists including #7 on the NY Times Best Seller list. For the sake of your brain… read “Grain Brain”.
