No doubts, modern people live not in accordance with our nature. It seems like our environments, food we eat, the air we breathe, and our lifestyles contradict our nature and that ancient software prebuilt in us. It all seems good since today we feel more secure and comfortable. In reality, some of our habits severely damage our health and other fields of our life. ‘Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar – Your Brain’s Silent Killer by David Perlmutter is a book addressing this very situation.
David Perlmutter is a renowned neurologist and a bestselling author of ‘Brain Maker’. As you have already guessed by the title of the book, the author is telling about grain and its harmful effect upon our health. Stone age people didn’t eat grain. Meat, fruits, and vegetables were the only food of our predecessors. In the book, David Perlmutter proves that grain is a modern invention and it is very harmful to our health. D. Perlmutter states that the majority of modern diseases such as Alzheimer’s, diabetes, epilepsy, dementia, ADHD, chronic anxieties, depressions, and many other problems of a modern human being were nonexistent in ancient times. The scientist draws a solid line between our bad habit of grain-eating and modern maladies. The main focus of the book is the dangerous impact of grain, wheat, carbs, and sugars on the health of the brain. Since the brain is the main organ of the body, the damaged brain worsens the overall health of a person. The brain is the central organ of the body, and the health of the whole body depends on the proper functioning of the brain.
