What can you do, right now, to optimize your brain health – and protect your brain from diseases like Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia?
What’s the most important organ in your body? Without your heart, your blood wouldn’t flow, and your cells would die. Without your lungs, no oxygen would get to your blood. And without your kidneys, you couldn’t get rid of nitrogenous waste. OK, so they’re all crucial to your survival.
But when it comes to taking care of yourself, there’s one organ that often gets overlooked: your brain. What’s truly ironic is, it’s your brain that’s doing the overlooking. Just think about it for a moment: Your brain tells your heart how fast and how powerfully to beat. Your brain tells your lungs how often and how deeply to breathe. Your brain tells your kidneys… OK, you get the picture.
And your brain also allows you to read, write, and speak, to form memories, and to experience moods. In short, your brain is the engine of your very identity.
The upcoming Food Revolution Summit, a free online summit featuring 25 of the world’s most trusted food and nutrition experts (including Dr. Greger and Dr. Barnard) will discuss the brain in relation to lifestyle and diet. Running from April 25-May 3, the summit will present the most up-to-date research and information about food, nutrition, disease prevention, immune health, and environmental stewardship.
