Genius Foods: Become Smarter, Happier, and More Productive While Protecting Your Brain for Life is an attempt to uncover the facts and propose new unifying principles to counter our collective modern malaise. You’ll learn about the foods that have become casualties of the modern world—raw materials to build your best brain yet, replaced by the biological equivalent of cheap particleboard. Every chapter delves into the precise elements of optimal brain function—from your precious cell membranes, to your vascular system, to the health of your gut —all through the lens of what matters most: your brain. Each chapter is followed by a “Genius Food,” containing many of the beneficial elements discussed in the surrounding text. These foods will serve as your weapons against cognitive mediocrity and decay—eat them, and eat them often. Later in the book, I’ll detail the optimal Genius Lifestyle, culminating in the Genius Plan.
