Fueling the Brain with Nutrition

The brain takes up just two percent of the body’s weight. Additionally, the brain consumes 20 percent of calories that are taken in each day. A consistent supply of glucose needs to be provided to the brain; however, according to Marc Montminy from Salk Institute in California, carbohydrates that are high in glucose, such as soda, can damage cells in the brain and other parts of the body. @TimFrancisDC #DrTimothyFrancis
