Could your breakfast or lunch be harming your memory? Are you overlooking foods that may prevent Alzheimer's disease? Leading nutritional research scientist Neal Barnard (also the author of The Cancer Survivor's Guide and 21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart) here presents the investigation and diet plan that were featured in the PBS documentary of the same name. Barnard explains how certain foods—power foods—can protect your brain and optimize its function. His three-step plan reveals which brain-boosting foods to increase in your diet and which to avoid, and describes specific exercises and supplements that can also reduce your risk of Alzheimer's disease, stroke, and such everyday problems as low energy, poor sleep patterns, irritability, and lack of focus.
