My interview on brain health now has 230,000 views!
I stumbled onto a book called Grain Brain during a recent trip to the bookstore, which uniquely combines two of my favorite topics: neuroscience and nutrition. I reached out to the author, Dr. David Perlmutter, the country’s only doctor who is both a board-certified neurologist and Fellow of The American Board of Nutrition, for an interview for my blog on Psychology Today. Considering that deaths from Alzheimer’s increased 68 percent between 2000 and 2010, the topic of brain health is more pressing than ever. My interview now has over 210,000 views and the book has become a #1 NY Times Bestseller, which shows that people do care about their brains!
