A renowned neurologist, David Perlmutter, MD, FACN, ABIHM, 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.

Dr. David Perlmutter is a board-certified neurologist and Fellow of the American College of Nutrition. He received his MD degree from the University Of Miami School Of Medicine, where he was awarded the Leonard G. Rowntree Research Award for best research by a medical student. After completing residency training in neurology, also at the University of Miami, Dr. Perlmutter entered private practice in Naples, Florida.

Dr. Perlmutter serves as an associate professor at the University Of Miami School Of Medicine.
