There are more than 600 diseases affecting the neurological system, which is made up of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. Some of the most debilitating neurological conditions, like Alzheimer’s, have now reached epidemic proportions. One of the major contributors to this is the radical change in diet in the past few decades, especially the move from a high natural fat to a high carbohydrate diet.
Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia and because brain insulin signaling is impaired in the disease, it is believed to be a third form of diabetes.
Asperger’s is an autism spectrum disorder characterised by social and communication difficulties such as lack of empathy and restrictive, repetitive, and stereotyped patterns of behavior.
