Innovative and timely, and with accompanying brain-boosting recipes and lists of what to eat and what to avoid, Brain Food provides the ultimate plan for maximizing our brain power. Reveals the foods that will keep your brain in tip-top shape AND prevent dementia' Daily Mail 'A critically important book. If you want to keep and save your brain you have to get your food right. Brain Food will help you do just that in a delicious, easy way' Daniel G. Amen, author of Memory Rescue
LS! Het boek zet zich af tegen het Amerikaanse dieet. Het geeft een redelijk wetenschappelijk overzicht van hoe je kunt eten en wat je kunt doen om je hersenen gezond te houden en Alzheimer te vermijden. Met de aanbeveling biologisch te eten zal de biologische supermarkt bij mij om de hoek blij zijn, maar ik geloof niet dat het zuivere wetenschap is. Ik trof ook slordigheden aan in het boek zoals de bewering dat 4 of 6 gram DHA per dag gegeten kan worden en dat één liter olijfolie per week genuttigd kan worden. Ik had al heel veel over het onderwerp hersenen en gezondheid gelezen en kwam weinig nieuws tegen. Het Ebook is wel waar voor mijn geld.
