We’re now just three days from the release of Grain Brain. It’s hard for me to believe that after this weekend, the book will finally become available to you all. Most of all, I’m eager for this information to work it’s way into our community and to start getting feedback from everyone. That will be the most rewarding part of this entire experience.
I’m so excited that I want to share with you a brief excerpt from the book. Here’s a brief bit from the opening paragraphs of Grain Brain:
Alzheimer’s disease is a modern medical bogeyman that’s never far from the headlines. If there is one health worry that seems to eclipse all others as people get older, it’s falling prey to Alzheimer’s or some other form of dementia that leaves you unable to think, reason, and remember. Research shows how deep this angst runs. Last year, a poll conducted by Harris Interactive for the MetLife Foundation showed that 31 percent of people fear dementia more than death or cancer. It also found that this fear doesn’t just affect older people.
And there are plenty of myths about the basket of brain-degenerating maladies that perpetuate: it’s in the genes, it’s inevitable with age, and it’s a given if you live into your eighties and beyond.
Not so fast.
I’m here to tell you that the fate of your brain is not in your genes. It’s not inevitable. And it’s certainly not your fate if you live long past your prime because your heart keeps beating.
It’s in the food you eat.
In just three days, you’ll be able to read more. If you haven’t already, pre-order Grain Brain today.
