Book Review: The Aging Brain: Proven Steps to Prevent Dementia and Sharpen Your Mind by Timothy R. Jennings MD

The Aging Brain: Proven Steps to Prevent Dementia and Sharpen Your Mind by Timothy R. Jennings MD

You would think a book written by a brain doctor that taught much about brain science would be terribly complex and hard to understand. You might also think it would be boring. Nothing could be further from the truth.

In the book The Aging Brain: Proven Steps to Prevent Dementia and Sharpen Your Mind by Timothy R. Jennings MD, we find an easy to understand book that explains in great detail what we can do to avoid brain problems in our young ones and also in us as we age.

Most often when you read a book that deals in health issues, you find that the author either takes the side of science only or of a natural cure and Christian stance. Jennings explains why and how both are right and gives scripture references to back himself up.

If you want to know what foods to avoid to protect your brain, it is in there. If you want to know what to eat, it is in there, too.

If your church has small group Bible study classes, it would do well to create a course around this book.

The Aging Brain is very well-written, easy to understand, and very educational. We give it all five stars and know that, once you read your copy, you will want rate it that high as well.

We were sent a complimentary copy of this book. We are under no obligation to write any review, positive or negative.

Book Review: Unsafe at Any Meal: What the FDA Does Not Want You to Know About the Foods You Eat by Dr. Renee Joy Dufault

Unsafe at Any Meal: What the FDA Does Not Want You to Know About the Foods You Eat by Dr. Renee Joy Dufault

Back in 1965, a very good year by the way, Ralph Nadar published his book, Unsafe At Any Speed. Nadar was attempting to warn the American public about the dangers of the automobile and particularly the Chevrolet Corvair.

In the book Unsafe at Any Meal: What the FDA Does Not Want You to Know About the Foods You Eat by Dr. Renee Joy Dufault, the author is seeking to inform her readers about the dangers lurking in our food.

The author makes a very compelling case regarding the Standard American Diet (SAD) and how it can lead to autism, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD), and Alzheimer’s disease. It even appears that it may be possible to reverse some of the effects of those conditions by changing our diet.

One would think that a book like this would be a very dry read, but it isn’t.  This book is well-written and not too academic for most readers. When she does speak in scientific terms, she explains those terms in a simple form that even a redneck could understand and get the point.

Dr. Dufault tells her readers what they can do to live a healthier life.  She explains how even a person on a very limited budget may be able to eat healthier.  Wouldn’t it be great if she and her associates were to write a cookbook that provides healthy recipes on an extremely low budget?

We give Unsafe at Any Meal all five stars on our scale of zero to five stars.  We think it is an important book. This book is well-written and easy to understand, even though it does take on a fairly complex subject.

This book should be made required reading for all high school students.  A few hundred congressmen should also read this book.

We were sent a complimentary copy of this book.  We are under no obligation to write any review, positive or negative.
