Top 10 Most Damaging Brain Habits – PositiveMed

October 15, 2013

Check this out and I found 1, 2,4 and 6 are the top four.

1. Lack of Stimulating ThoughtsLack of brain stimulation may cause brain shrinkage. Thinking is the best way to train your brain, so think more, write more, explore more, all this will help you to keep your brain fresh.

2. Skipping Breakfast or No Breakfast at allPeople who do not eat breakfast have lower blood sugar levels, which leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain causing brain degeneration.

3. Over EatingOften we find tasty food and start eating more than what our body requires, which can cause hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.

4. SmokingSmoking not only harms the lungs, but the brain as well, the nicotine in cigarettes contains substances that can cause multiple brain cell shrinkage, leading to Alzheimer’s disease.

5. High sugar consumptionToo much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.

6. Sleep DeprivationLong term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells. More cells dead equals more memory loss.

7. Head covered while sleepingSleeping with the head covered increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decreases concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects, it would result in a 92.8% chance of suffering from either an early stage, middle stage, or late stage of dementia, by the age of 70.

8. Talking RarelyIntellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of the brain.

9. Working your brain during illnessTake a rest, working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well as damaging the brain.

10. Air pollutionYou probably know that your brain is the largest oxygen consumer in your body, so its the organ that consumes the largest amount of pollution from the air. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.
