Food and Behaviour - If You Only Knew! Dr.Russell Blaylock

Delightful and incredibly information dense talk about the effects of diet on behaviour.
"nutrition can control whether genes are operative or can early in the stages of development alter a child's and mother's nutrition and affect a child's life from the is never too late to make nutritional changes...there is a profound influence on your ability to function intellectually just by changing diet and most of what you do is detrimental...a lot of the things we are seeing are marginal deficiencies...

The brain uses a tremendous amount of energy, even in deep coma the brain's metabolism is only down by 50%.  This high metabolism creates a lot of free radicals and lipid peroxidation products which can damage and prematurely age the brain - unless we take care of our diets.  Russell Blaylock talks about the shocking implications of hypoglycemia for anti-social behaviour, the stunning results of changing the diet of violent criminals and the role of hypoglycemia in alcoholism (71% of alcoholics become sober when this issue is addressed - this compares with the 25% success rate of Alcoholics' Anonymous).

Excess carbohydrates can cause thiamine deficiency and personality changes and other mental problems.  Also the effects of soy foods, corn, potatoes, gluten, brain allergies, vaccinations (immune reaction goes on for years) and a mother's thyroid deficiencies on her unborn baby...and much more...

Influences include fats, carbohydrates, proteins, fruit and vegetables, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, flavonoids, hormonal balance (testosterone, oestrogen, thyroid hormones) and environmental toxins particularly heavy metals and there are synergistic effects between these things.
