Dr. David Perlmutter, a neurologist and fellow of the American College of Nutrition, recently released the fifth annual revision of his incredibly successful book, “Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth About Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar – Your Brain’s Silent Killers.” Having sold over 1 million copies, it has achieved a landmark rarely reached by books about natural medicine. Two fundamental points made in his book is that, a) sugar is toxic to the brain, and b) non-celiac gluten sensitivity is real. And, with this fifth edition, Perlmutter has been able to update the book with even more supporting scientific evidence. •Excessive sugar consumption is toxic to your brain and is a powerful driver of Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological dysfunction. •Research shows Alzheimer’s can be effectively prevented by lowering sugar exposure, increasing exercise and improving the quality of your sleep. •Use of statin medication is associated with a 41 percent higher risk of Type 2 diabetes in men and a 71 percent higher risk for women. •Type 2 diabetes raises your risk of Alzheimer’s three- to fourfold. Fasting has been shown to rapidly and effectively reverse diabetes, thereby also lowering your dementia risk. •There’s a direct relationship between elevations of blood sugar and risk for developing dementia. Sugar and other carbohydrates disrupt your brain function even if you have no symptoms of diabetes.
