Neurologist and author of the best-selling Grain Brain, David Perlmutter, would like you to consider a few facts. In the past 35 years, death due to brain disease has increased by 66 per cent; we pay about triple the amount each year caring for dementia patients than cancer patients; mood and anxiety disorders are rising as is multiple sclerosis while autism is eight times more common today than it was 15 years ago.
You might wonder what’s going on with our brains. But, Perlmutter says these conditions are more about what’s happening in our guts than in our brains.
