    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.

    Healing A.D.D. with Dr. Daniel Amen ADD or ADHD is a national health crisis that continues to grow-yet it remains one of the most misunderstood and incorrectly treated illnesses today. Kids and adults are put on powerful stimulant medications in short office visits without any biological information, and the stories of these medications hurting children and adults are common and persistent.
    In this national public television program, psychiatrist Daniel Amen and his wife nurse Tana Amen take a completely new look at ADD and explain 7 unique types based on the extensive brain imaging work of the Amen Clinics on tens of thousands of ADD patients. Treating all people with ADD the same invites failure and frustration and can be a disaster, as the traditional treatments that make two of the types better can make the other 5 types worse.
    The show is divided into three parts. In Part One, the myths and misconceptions about ADD will be discussed as well as the hallmark ADD symptoms. In Part Two, the 7 different types of ADD will be described in detail. And, in Part Three Dr. and Mrs. Amen we'll give you a clear method for Healing ADD, including the best natural treatments. They are not opposed to medication, but think it's smart to start with lifestyle and natural treatments first.

    KQED NEWSROOM [#116H] A Dry Run For Coho Salmon, Concerns Over Pedestrian Safety and the Tenth Anniversary of Same-Sex Marriage
    Drought Update
    President Obama visits California's Central Valley where he is expected to pledge $183 million in federal aid to help California farmers who lost livestock due to drought conditions. KQED Newsroom senior correspondent Scott Shafer provides analysis.

    A Dry Run for Coho Salmon
    California's worst drought on record is taking a toll not only on fields and farms but also on iconic native species, including the endangered Central California Coast coho salmon. Low water levels have prevented many adult coho from reaching their spawning grounds in Lagunitas Creek in Marin County. Last week's rains brought a measure of relief, raising water levels enough to allow some salmon through. But as KQED reporter Dan Brekke found in talking with a fish biologist at the Marin Municipal Water District, the relief may be temporary.

    Concerns Over Pedestrian Safety After a Spike in Fatalities
    A spike in fatal pedestrian traffic accidents around the Bay Area has renewed attention on both street design and driver behavior. A fatal crash this week on San Francisco's Van Ness Street brings this year's tally up to three for the city. And last year was a particular deadly year for San Jose, where 26 pedestrian fatalities were logged — the highest in nearly two decades. What's behind the spike and what can be done to calm traffic?

    Chris Hwang, Walk Oakland Bike Oakland board president

    Tenth Anniversary of Same Sex Marriage — An Interview with Kate Kendell
    It's been ten years since then-Mayor Gavin Newsom allowed marriage licenses for gay couples at City Hall in San Francisco. Same sex marriage has been on a long and winding journey since then — from a voter proposition to ban gay marriage to a U.S. Supreme Court decision that struck down part of the Defense of Marriage Act. Now seventeen states and the District of Columbia allow same sex marriage, and public opinion is rapidly changing. Scott Shafer hears from the National Center for Lesbian Rights Executive Director Kate Kendell about her work on this civil rights issue and where it's heading next.

    American Masters [#2602] Sister Rosetta Tharpe: The Godmother of Rock & Roll During the 1940s, 50s and 60s, Southern-born, Chicago-raised and New York-made Sister Rosetta Tharpe introduced the spiritual passion of her gospel music into the secular world of popular rock 'n roll, inspiring the male icons of the genre.

She is acknowledged as a major influence not only on generations of black musicians - including Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Isaac Hayes and Etta James - but also on white stars such as Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
