Grain Brain

I am curious if anyone here has read this book by David Perlmutter. I am wondering what your opinion is of what he has written and the conclusions he has drawn.

I read it about a year ago. I felt it was a fine book but I did not learn anything new.  I knew what grain could do to your brain from reading other books for celiacs and Wheat Belly.  It seemed like a long read to me - it was a book that could have been a long magazine article. KWIM?

 

For someone who knows little about the effect of grains on our bodies, and is dealing with those issues, it would be a good read.

I read it recently. He packs a lot of information into the book - unfortunately it's hard to distinguish between what's factual (a lot of it is) and what's not quite proven. I think it's an interesting read, but I would take large portions of it with a "grain" of salt.

Yes, that was what I thought. It WAS long. My Lord! I just sort of felt that he made gluten to be the culprit for everything. Got a headache - gluten is to blame. Got a hang nail - gluten is to blame. Don't get me wrong - I DO agree that a lot of people are gluten sensitive or intolerant or celiac but I think to blame every single ailment on gluten is detrimental to those who should be seeking other reasoning behind disease process etc. I sort of felt it was so one-sided and anti-gluten that it might actually put people off and make them not believe most of what he has to say.
