Jean-Marie Bourre

The Dietetics of the Brain New Edition Publication date : April 1, 1995

How should we eat to think well and work productively? J.-M. Bourre, a neurotoxicologist, celebrates the pleasures of a greedy brain, a gastronomical brain. He takes us on a fascinating exploration of the complex chemistry which links our brain to our plate in the world of proteins, vitamins, mineral salts, and lipids. By providing the keys to proper nutrition, this book shows the way to greater mental awareness, energy, health and fulfilment, while respecting the real needs of both the body and the brain — that most crucial organ. Throughout the book, pleasure (adapted to every budget) remains one of the author’s main concerns.
