Why fasting bolsters brain power?

Mark Mattson at TEDxJohnsHopkinsUniversity

” Why is it that the normal diet is 3 meals a day plus snacks? It isn’t that it’s the healthiest eating pattern, now that’s my opinion but I think there’s a lot of evidence to support that. There are a lot of pressure to have that eating pattern, there’s a lot of money involved. The food industry, are they going to make money from skipping breakfast like I did today? No, they going to lose money. If people fast, the food industry loses money. What about the pharmaceutical industries? What if people do some intermittent fasting, exercise periodically and are very healthy, is the pharmaceutical industry going to make any money on healthy people?”
