Summary
The #1 New York Times best-selling author of Grain Brain and his son, also a medical doctor, explore how modern culture threatens to rewire our brains and damage our health, offering a practical plan for healing. Includes a ten-day practical program with meal plan and recipes.
Modern culture is rewiring our brains and damaging our health. We immerse ourselves in foods whenever we want; enter an enticing world of digital media; buy goods and services with voice commands. This life poses serious risks to our physical and mental states, our connections to others, and even to the world at large. The Perlmutters believe our brains are being gravely manipulated, resulting in behaviors that leave us more lonely, anxious, depressed, distrustful, illness-prone, and overweight than ever before. They provide the tools necessary to think more clearly, make better decisions, strengthen bonds with others, and develop healthier habits. -- adapted from jacket
