Dr Neal Barnard, the founder of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, knows the importance of lifestyle choices when it comes to brain health. Spending the past decade focusing on people and how their food choices affect health in many ways, Barnard joins us in this episode to discuss his research and how mental illnesses can be prevented through proper diets and life decisions.
