Grain Brain.
David Perlmutter.

I believe that the shift in our diet that has occurred over the past century—from high-fat, low-carb to today’s low-fat, high-carb diet, fundamentally consisting of grains and other damaging carbohydrates—is the origin of many of our modern scourges linked to the brain, including chronic headaches, insomnia, anxiety, depression, epilepsy, movement disorders, schizophrenia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and those senior moments that quite likely herald serious cognitive decline and full-blown, irreversible, untreatable, and incurable brain disease. I’ll reveal to you the profound effect that grains could be having on your brain right now without your even sensing it.

All of us are familiar with the obesity epidemic as well as the soaring number of kids with ADHD and seniors with dementia. Could all three of these conditions be traceable to the same root cause: a grain-based diet?

    Around the world, obesity levels are rising. More people are now overweight than undernourished. Two thirds of British adults are overweight and one in four of us is classified as obese. In the first of this three-part series, Jacques Peretti traces those responsible for revolutionising our eating habits, to find out how decisions made in America 40 years ago influence the way we eat now.

    In 40 short years the people in Britain and the United States have been gaining weight at an astonishing rate. This show examines a number of the causes. It will be interesting to see what the next 2 episodes bring.
