9780199393275: Your Brain on Food: How Chemicals Control Your Thoughts and Feelings, Second Edition
Review:

An absolutely fascinating read (or book) peppered with gems of surprising information on how certain foods, plants, nicotine and drugs (legal and illegal) alter the very essence of your brain cells' functioning and thus your behavior and mood. Don't deprive yourself of the pleasure of reading it. ( Jean Carper, author of Your Miracle Brain and 100 Simple Things You Can Do To Prevent Alzheimer's and Age-Related Memory Loss)

Your Brain on Food provides ample and important food for thought in a delightfully written reader-friendly style. Kernels of history sprinkled throughout the book provide both interest and insight into how our appetites influence our brains and, and thus, our thoughts and actions. Gary Wenk has provided a compelling and much-needed antidote to commonly available misinformation about nutrients and brain function. Readers will be richly informed ( as well as entertained.)

All of us are impacted by a bewildering array of psychoactive drugs and foods, some being agents of abuse and others being of importance in treating disease. Gary Wenk, a nationally eminent neuroscientist, provides a gripping account of the neurotransmitters that enable neurons in the brain to talk to each other and shows how drugs as well as substances derived from foods exert their psychoactive influences. Wenk has a gift for making complex concepts crystal clear and relating seemingly arcane science in a fascinating, lucid fashion - as gripping as a detective story. This is an invaluable book for anyone who is curious about the brain and its functions. ( Solomon H. Snyder, M.D., Distinguished Service Professor of Neuroscience, Pharmacology and Psychiatry, Johns Hopkins University)

Intriguing ( Scientific American MIND)

From the Publisher:

Can marijuana be used to reduce psychic pain? How do specific foods affect how we think and feel? Why does fat taste so good? How do biorhythms influence the effects of food upon our thinking? Why are acidic foods so harmful? Which fats are good for our brain? Why does our brain make overeating so pleasurable? Does our brain want us to be obese? Dieting vs. exercise: Which is best for the brain and body? Does eating turkey really make you sleepy? Can ibuprofen make us high?

In this updated second edition, Dr Wenk expands his discussions of the effects of specific foods by investigating the benefits and risks of supplements, the action of gluten in the brain, and more. Some of the fascinating topics covered in this revised edition include: Can tryptophan supplements improve your mood? Is your aluminum cookware hurting your brain? How do fruits and vegetables protect us from aging? Why does eating chocolate make you feel so angry? Never forget: everything we consume can affect how we think, feel, and act.
