TOP 10 BIGGEST BRAIN DAMAGING HABITS!

According to world health organization following are such habits that will damage your brain severely:


1. No Breakfast – Due to our busy schedule, many of us forget to take breakfast. People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower blood sugar level. This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain causing brain degeneration.




2. Overeating – Most of the times we find tasty food and start eating more that what our body requires. This cause hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.


3. Smoking – “PLEASE STOP SMOKING” It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer disease.


4. High Sugar consumption – Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.

5. Air Pollution – This has been the greatest cause of worry for people living in the cities. The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.


6. Sleep Deprivation – The present generation suffers from the curse of insomnia. We are addicted to the online world. Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells.

Head covered while sleeping – Sleeping with the head covered increases the concentration of carbon dioxide through rebreathing, and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects or Hypoxia. Hypoxia means lock of oxygen in the brain and has been considered responsible for an increase of A-beta proteins, the accumulation in which is considered as the significant maker of Alzheimer's disease.
