Today, I'm instituting a new feature on this SUGAR SHOCK! Blog. From time to time, we'll highlight compelling quotes from health experts and other gurus in the field of self improvement and empowerment.
These eloquent comments come courtesy of fellow blogger Jimmy Moore, who posted them on his Livin' La Vida Low Carb Blog and on his blog on Diet Detective. They are part of a Q&A that Jimmy conducted with the neurosurgeon.
Dr. McCleary said:
"...we have all heard that the brain burns glucose, or sugar. So if that's the case, then giving it lots of sugar must make it work better. Although that might seem logical, the science doesn't back it up. Just the opposite."There is a groundswell of medical evidence that documents how too much sugar can make the brain shrink, wither, atrophy and just plain work badly.
"If you want to age your brain, just eat the typical diet most Americans consume. That will lead to memory, attention and mood difficulties and will hasten the path to Alzheimer's. The Brain Trust Program builds upon this concept and provides the science behind the recommendations."
Thanks, Dr. McCleary, for explaining your concept so succinctly, and thanks, Jimmy, for sharing these convincing remarks with us.
