Emily Deans, M.D. presenting at the 2nd annual Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS12).

Our modern diets are filled with empty calories and often devoid of important micronutrients. In this presentation, we will explore how what we consume affects how our brain works. We will cover what the latest scientific literature says about fructose, polyunsaturated fats, wheat, and various other so-called neolithic agents with respect to neurologic function. We'll review gut dysbiosis, several types of "paleo" diets, and the role of micronutrient deficiency in mental health. We will conclude the presentation with some pointers as to what to eat.

Emily Deans, M.D. is a board certified adult psychiatrist practicing in Massachusetts. Her interest in how differences between modern lifestyle and ancestral lifestyles affect human physical and mental health is explored at her blog, Evolutionary Psychiatry, at evolutionarypsychiatry.blogspot.com and at Psychology Today.
