Readers seeking clarity about eating grains, gluten and sweets will devour nutritionist and neurologist Dr. David Perlmutter’s explanations of how your dietary choices can lead to inflammation that harms your health. Working with writer Kristin Loberg, he describes his concept of how refined grains, whole grains, and other carbs interact with your DNA and may affect your long-term health. Perlmutter believes eating a low-carb, gluten-free diet isn’t just for those at risk of celiac disease. While never giving medical advice, getAbstract recommends taking the book’s popular advice with a bit of caution. Perlmutter is deliberately and skillfully writing accessibly for a lay audience, but nutritional science is a very complex medical subject, as is inflammation. Read the book if you’d like to explore how diet links to overall health, longevity, quality of life, and neurological or autoimmune disorders. And, of course, don’t radically change how you eat without consulting your doctor.
