This kind of reinforces what I think about diet and Alzheimer's & Dementia.

Quote:
Researchers from the Mayo Clinic, for example, revealed that deriving most of dietary calories from carbohydrates was associated with an 89% increased risk for either mild cognitive impairment, or full-blown dementia. In their study, those consuming the highest levels of fat actually demonstrated a 44% reduction in risk.
Along with the increase in obesity and related conditions such as diabetes, we have seen a significant increase in Alzheimer's and Dementia. IMO, this correlates with an increased consumption of refined carbohydrates as in the SAD (Standard American Diet).

Dr. Perlmutter is hardly a reliable source.

Not bad credentials in my mind:

https://www.sharecare.com/user/dr-david-perlmutter

If only a tiny portion of our MD's had some of this doctor's knowledge.

I believe he's opened minds/eyes of millions and I first saw him I believe on PBS he was lecturing on the brain and keeping it healthy and I continue to work to that end. I still consume some refined carbs but way way less than my early life.. Eliminating breads for the last 10 yrs has been a major jump.

Frankly, I had no idea who he was. I was concentrating on the content, not the writer. So that means the message is complete BS then? He pulled it out of his rear end?

lol.

Last time I checked, "Brain Surgery" was the epitome being smart.

I knew that but decided to leave the post as is, just to see if someone would spot that.

So, since he is just a neurologist and not an actual brain surgeon, that makes him dumb?

So other than the nitpicking, anything else about the actual information here?

In that case, I'll spell it out for you. Whether he is a neurologist or a brain surgeon makes no difference with his credibility.

I would have to agree with this.

Quote:
Perlmutter has always been unorthodox in his approach to medicine. For well over a decade, and long before he was a household name, he has claimed to offer his readers “miraculous” — his word — treatments capable of preventing or reversing all sorts of devastating medical problems. He has also claimed that supplements and “detoxification” regimens — available for purchase on his various websites — are crucial to optimizing brain health. Earlier this year, he stated that the conversation about childhood vaccines and autism is “ill-defined,” and that parents should ask their pediatricians about spacing out their children’s vaccinations — an approach the CDC disagrees with, and which 90 percent of doctors surveyed by the journal Pediatrics in 2013 said would put children and communities at greater risk of contracting preventable diseases.

As Perlmutter’s megaphone has grown, so, too, has his brand empire — he has sold everything from “Empowering Coconut Oil” to supplement blends tailored for specific demographics, like the $90 “Scholar’s Advantage Pack” for “young adults seeking to optimize cognitive function,” and the $160 “Senior Empowerment Pack,” a “combination of formulas designed to help keep you cognitively sharp as you age.” One book pointed readers to an $8,500 brain detoxification retreat run by Perlmutter, which included shamanic healing ceremonies. (He even has his own organic foaming hand soap.)

Neurologists tend to draw from the super nerds of med school classes.
