Grain Brain represents my interpretation of the most leading edge science related to the roles of nutrition and other lifestyle factors in brain health, functionality, and resistance to disease. This dedicated review of current science, coupled with my day to day experience in applying this information in clinical practice dealing with a vast array of neurological conditions as well as my personal interactions with leading scientists, clinicians and researchers from around the world have provided the resource base for writing Grain Brain.
As I have been involved in exploring and reporting on the powerful role of nutrition in the brain health arena over the past twenty years I have witnessed an ongoing evolution in the nutritional science toward better and better refinement of the core messages. And this is why the fundamental tenets of my message have evolved as well. Dietary recommendations found in my previous books including, The Better Brain Book, Raise a Smarter Child by Kindergarten, and Power Up Your Brain – The Neuroscience of Enlightenment were based on the very best information available to me at the time. Clearly, the recommendations found in Grain Brain differ somewhat from my previous works as nutritional science continues to refine our understanding of what truly represents the very best recommendations for human nutrition.
