I listened to a terrific webinar by Dr. David Perlmutter that I wanted to share. It’s about the toxic effects of carbohydrates, especially those found in our 21st century processed food diet, the myth of low cholesterol. It dovetails with my readings on paleo diets and epigenetics. Click the link below.
A renowned neurologist Dr. Perlmutter 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.
