    BrainChange with David Perlmutter, MD This program reveals the devastating truth about the effects of wheat, sugar, and carbohydrates on the human brain, with a 30-day plan to achieve optimum health. Renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, MD, blows the lid off a topic that's been buried in medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain. And not just unhealthy carbs, but even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more.
    The vast majority of us don't realize that our seemingly "healthy" daily habits are silently aggravating our nervous systems and setting us up for serious brain ailments. This program shows that the fate of your brain is not in your genes. It's in the food you eat. Dr. Perlmutter, a leading international authority on nutritional medicine, has a disturbing yet empowering message: our brains are highly sensitive to certain proteins and sugars that are ubiquitous today - in our hand creams and organic ice creams, cocktails and coffees, multi-grain breads, whole fruits, and even brand name pharmaceuticals.
    Dr. Perlmutter shows us how to prevent, treat, and reverse a wide array of brain-related disorders by eliminating specific foods from our diets and making smarter lifestyle choices. His new book, Grain Brain, is the first book of its kind to explore the insidious role our highly touted low-fat, high-carb diets play in a host of neurological conditions.
    Dr. Perlmutter is both a board-certified neurologist and a Fellow of the American College of Nutrition. He also runs his own private practice, The Perlmutter Health Center, in Naples, Florida.

    Classical Rewind (My Music) From the romantic mood of Beethoven's 'Moonlight Sonata' to the dramatic emotions of Orff's 'O Fortuna', this program visits the greatest compositions and composers of all time.

For many, this is the music they grew up enjoying and appreciating. For others, the melodies are recognizable from movies, television, commercials and even Fourth of July celebrations. This special explores the origins of the music, stories and anecdotes about the composers and their works, and how so many of the classics have become part of our common culture.

    KQED NEWSROOM [#108H] Water Wars, Archbishop Cordileone and Hacking for Social Change
    Water Tunnel Wars
    This week, state officials unveiled the latest version of an ambitious plan to address California's decades-old water crisis. A whopping 34,000 pages detail the environmental impact of a $25 billion project to divert water from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and pipe it to Southern California. Proponents say the project will help move water from the state's north to the south while saving the Delta's endangered species. Critics call the plan a costly water grab and have vowed to block it in court or at the ballot box.

    Paul Rogers, KQED and San Jose Mercury News

    Archbishop Cordileone
    Catholics around the world cheered this week's selection of Pope Francis as Time magazine's Person of the Year. In words and deeds, the new pope has provided a distinct change in tone for the church, stressing modesty and concern for the poor, while rejecting an emphasis on social issues like abortion and gay rights. Scott Shafer sits down with San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone for a look into how the local church hierarchy is reacting. Cordileone, a San Diego native, was named archbishop by Pope Benedict XVI in 2012. He is a conservative figure in one of the state's liberal bastions, leading a flock that stretches from Marin to San Mateo.

    Hacking for Social Change
    Computer code and apps could be the next tools used in the fight to curb gun violence. One year after the Newtown massacre, the Bay Area hosts a conference exploring how technology can prevent future tragedies. Thuy Vu talks with James Colgan of Highground Hackers, the group behind this weekend's "Symposium for Sandy Hook."
