It took just a few days for the Critics to aim their guns at neurologist David Perlmutter, M.D., and his new book.   i haven’t even had a chance to read it yet.  Hopefully, I’ll make more headway this weekend.  So far – nothing new – except extending the “damage” linked to inflammation to the brain – which – after all – is just another organ.

Check out the Yahoo post “Do Carbs Cause Alzheimer’s” by Charlotte Andersen of Shape Magazine. 

Of course, one of the lead critics quoted is Cynthia Harriman, director of food and nutrition strategies for the Whole Grains Council.

Grain Brain is a misleading and sensationalist title for a book that distorts current science and contributes, sadly, to public confusion about what constitutes a healthy diet.”

Did we expect anything else from the Whole Grains Council?
