From #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. Perlmutter, the devastating truth about the effects of wheat, sugar, and carbs on the brain, and a 4-week plan to achieve optimum health.

David Perlmutter, MD, is president of the Perlmutter Health Center in Naples, Florida, and the co-founder and president of The Perlmutter Brain Foundation. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Humanitarian of the Year Award from the American College of Nutrition and the Linus Pauling Award, and he serves on the Medical...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Eye opening! - Not written like most "diet" books...Grain Brain will forever change how you view foods. Preventing cognitive decline is the primary goal of the book, but many diseases and neurological ailments are discussed. I thoroughly enjoyed the writing style. The message is simple and well supported. You have to read this!
