    i watched. not sure what to think. getting rid of all carbs? all the below-the-ground veggies?
    that table he had of all the "no" foods and then the table of spinach, blueberries and rice.... didn't look appealing to me.

    i wonder, so many people, eat the carb laden foods on the "no" table so why isn't alzheimers a bigger problem? the ratio of bad eating to alzheimers doesn't seem right to me.

    I just watched it again and the things that Jumped out to me were....

    5.4 million Americans affected right now
    estimated to double by 2030
    the Candy bar has less affect than whole grain bread?
    Root vegetables store sugar in the form of starch
    the allowed carbs.... WHITE rice??? really????
    the above ground veggies? I won't argue ( the spinach and blueberries looked great to me, but I thought they should have shown alot more examples)
    and Fat is good, heart healthy fats...


    as far as the ratio of alzheimers to bad eating? I have no idea

    It was a good segment given that it was on a national TV show, a lot to fit in, in a short amount of time. I'm reading the Grain Brain book at the moment, only up to chapter six, so haven't got to his dietary recommendation yet.
