Fresh fruits, veggies and whole grains are all foods for thought.

An estimated five million Americans have Alzheimer's Disease, and the modern American diet is not helping reduce that statistic. 

Listen to the show and hear us discuss the new research on how to eat for a healthy brain.  Plus, we'll learn about new federal dietary guidelines, and why some experts disagree on the role cholesterol plays in a healthy diet. 

Guest

  • Dr. Neal Barnard, founding president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, author of Power Foods for the Brain
