Wheat Can Slow Your Brain - and it Lowered IQ 4 Points in Recent Study

Story at-a-glance -

  • There are five different sources of evolutionary evidence pointing the way toward the optimal human diet. These form the basis for Dr. Jaminet’s eating plan, which includes the controversial hypothesis that zero- or extremely low-carb diets can lead to health challenges due to insufficient glucose consumption
  • Naturally-occurring toxins in food can have a significant health impact by disrupting bodily functions such as digestion. For example, a recent Japanese study showed that children who eat wheat every day score almost four points lower on IQ tests than those who eat rice. Cooked white rice is very low in toxins, while wheat contains a number of problematic compounds known to cause health issues
  • According to Dr. Jaminet, it is not common, but possible, to have a deficiency of dietary glucose that could have a detrimental effect on your immune system. About half of your proteins use glucose to work, and they require glucose as a functional element. Additionally, although low-carb diets normally improve blood lipids, extremely low-carb diets can paradoxically increase LDL and triglyceride levels.
  • Dr. Jaminet’s “Perfect Health Diet” recommends 20-30 percent of daily calories to be in the form of rice or potatoes, aka ‘safe starches;’ 15 percent animal protein, and 55-65 percent healthy fats
