A main thesis of this work is that food can impact the brain either favorably or unfavorably. The author explains that men have brains that tend to shrink faster than women. In addition, high blood pressure tends to reduce brain size. Stress also damages the brain. There are juices which have a positive impact on brain chemistry; namely, grapefruit, tomato, orange and blueberries. Cranberry, spinach, kale, strawberries and plums have maximum ORAC units. Raisins and prunes are top anti-oxidants. Spinach, beet greens, tomato, orange juice, cantaloupe, squash, sweet potato and avocado help to minimize strokes. B vitamins and Vit C help to keep the brain young and preserve cerebrospinal fluid. Selenium boosts the brain and a deficiency can upset brain function. The stone age diet is best for people. It consists of 65% veggies, fruits, nuts and honey with 35% lean meat, eggs and fish. DHA is found in seafood and EPA is found in a fish diet. Linoleic acid is found in leafy green veggies and olive oil. Brain fat busters are saturated animal fat, whole milk, butter and cheese. This book will be a good addition to any personal health library
