BrainChange with David Perlmutter, MD

BrainChange reveals the devastating truth about the effects of wheat, sugar, and carbohydrates on the human brain, with a 30-day plan to achieve optimum health. Renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, MD, blows the lid off a topic that's been buried in medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain. And not just unhealthy carbs, but even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more. His New York Times #1 best-selling book, Grain Brain, is the first book of its kind to explore the insidious role our highly touted low-fat, high-carb diets play in a host of neurological conditions. The vast majority of us don't realize that our seemingly "healthy" daily habits are silently aggravating our nervous systems and setting us up for serious brain ailments. BrainChange shows that the fate of your brain is not in your genes. It's in the food you eat. Dr. Perlmutter, a leading international authority on nutritional medicine, has a disturbing yet empowering message: our brains are highly sensitive to certain proteins and sugars that are ubiquitous today-in our hand creams and organic ice creams, cocktails and coffees, multi-grain breads, whole fruits, and even brand name pharmaceuticals. In BrainChange, he shows us how to prevent, treat, and reverse a wide array of brain-related disorders by eliminating specific foods from our diets and making smarter lifestyle choices. Dr. Perlmutter is the only doctor in the country who is both a board-certified neurologist and a Fellow of the American College of Nutrition, making him uniquely suited to write this book and make this public television program. An in-demand expert for nationally syndicated radio and television programs, he has appeared on 20/20, CNN, Dr. Oz, Fox News, Good Morning America, The Today Show, and Oprah, among many outlets. Dr. Perlmutter also runs his own private practice, The Perlmutter Health Center, in Naples, Florida.

Focus On Europe : Trouble with Trident: Uk's Nuclear Warheads

France: A Pocket of Resistance in WWII - During the German occupation, residents in the small French village of Dieulefit helped save 1,500 Jews and others whose lives were threatened by the Nazis. Today, only a few of those villagers are still alive. One of them is 86-year-old Pascaline Cahen-Magnard. The secretary of the mayor, in 1943 she forged thousands of IDs for people who had gone into hiding in Dieulefit, while the local priest issued hundreds of fake christening certificates. What happened in this village during the Second World War only came to light a few years ago, partly thanks to the testimony of Cahen-Magnard. Denmark: The Ugly Business of Fur Farms - The global fur market is booming. One fifth of global demand for mink is met by Denmark. The country is home to over 1,400 mink farms, where animals are reportedly kept under hellish conditions. The mink industry is an unscrupulous business. Film footage shot in secret shows the appalling conditions that animals are subjected to at farms in Denmark. A related problem is that many of the animals raised on them escape, and are beginning to pose a growing threat to indigenous wildlife. Italy: Risks Faced by Child Refugees - Among the thousands of refugees fleeing Africa across the Mediterranean are many children making the journey by themselves. If they even reach Europe at all, they often end up victims of human traffickers and forced into prostitution. The Italian authorities are often unable to house the refugees who arrive on the country's shores. Even though many in Italy are willing to take them in, bureaucracy usually gets in the way. All too often, desperate and traumatized young refugees fall into the hands of criminals. GB/Scotland: The Trouble with Trident - The United Kingdom's nuclear arsenal, based in Scotland, has become a key election issue. The government wants to replace Trident, the sea-based nuclear weapons system, but the majority opinion in Scotland is that the whole program should be scrapped. The Scottish National Party (SNP) is particularly vociferous in its opposition to Trident. The UK's nuclear warheads are stored and loaded onto Trident submarines at the high-security Royal Naval Armaments Depot at Coulport and Faslane-on-Clyde near Glasgow. With the prospect of a Labour government that might reach a deal with the SNP to get rid of Trident, public debate about Britain's nuclear capabilities is raging.
