Does a rich carbohydrate diet boost the threat of dementia in you?
The increase in blood sugar due to rich carbohydrate diet can prove to be harmful to the brain. According to the recent reports, carbohydrates rich diet is a great risk for dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and brain shrinkage along with impaired cognition and even other disorders as this is explored by David Perimutter, MD and a fellow of the American College of Nutrition in his provocative interview in the best selling Alternative and Complementary Therapies.
The journal Brain and Gut which is going to be launched in summer 2014 will be a detail of the research which is dedicated to know the whole system approach to diseases and health due to its close relationship between the digestive system and the brain.
Dr. Perimutter in his interview says that,” we live with this notion that a calorie is a calorie, but at least in terms of brain health, and I believe for the rest of the body as well, there are very big differences between our sources of calorie in terms of the impact on our health. Carbohydrates calories, which elevated blood glucose, are dramatically more detrimental to human psychology, and specifically to human health, then are calories derived from healthful sources of fat.”
