Last night watched a PBS show by Dr Perlmutter thought it worthwhile that i share this info especially given our median age here. http://www.drperlmutter.com/ yeah yeah yeah he has a book and blog etc but how else does he disseminate knowledge.
Some revelations came out of it which i think have merits for us all as we age and even for those with kids.
Wont bore you all with details you can look em up if interested.
The net, neurologist and providing advice on how to try fend off Alzheimers or Dementia as we get older.
Draws attention to the fact that he is treating his own father for dementia and that there are no pharma solutions.
Also draws attention to the fact that his son currently studying to be a doctor is not being taught nutrition but loads of pharmacological information so our "standard" in medical teaching today is what pill to issue rather than what the patient puts in their mouth.
Draws attention to some of the myths we have been fed in our thoughts on nutrition in the past and how this has literally changed within the past couple of years some even as recent as 2013.
Links the mentioned diseases to inflammation of the brain. Says many kids that are branded as ADD in youth are not, they just need their diet changed and he shows video evidence of how this has changed many kids life. Anyhow i really just wanted to share the links not make a long post i get that you guys dont read and dont want long posts.
Besides any products containing gluten, he draws attention to managing the sugars. Not just sugar itself but the glycemic index of all foods.
Well here i am having only recently traded white bread for whole grain and this doc is saying can the whole grains stuff they have a higher glycemic index than even a candy bar.
But he also says eat good fats lots of them and the other new revelation is eat eggs. This after we have been brainwashed into believing eggs are bad for our cholesterol.
But my hat goes off to the US government and Institutions again (thank you US taxpayers). I keep saying there is no place i can come up with like the US where so much valuable information is provided online for people to be able to educate themselves.
(Warning though for those of you that can only handle a soundbite or text of 150 characters, well you have had it if you cannot read maybe You tube has some videos ....sorry but you cannot get knowledge in 150 character sound bite.)
Sure we have sites of similar info in other western countries but nothing in my view to the depth of the US government departments.
Take a look at these institutions for info on glycemic index of foods. (note not just gov institutions in the links, Harvard is also included )
US Dept of Agriculture
American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
Anyhow i really just wanted to share the links not make a long post i get that you guys don't read and don't want long posts.
