Top Ten Brain-Damaging Habits

Adopted from an Funzug email. I read some of these tips from Readers' Digest, so, I pretty believe these have been validated through studies.

1. No 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
It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.

3. 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
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
Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the
Death of brain cells.

7. Head covered while sleeping
Sleeping with the head covered, increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and
Decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to8. Working your brain during illness brain damaging effects.

Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of
The brain as well as damage the brain.

9. Lacking in stimulating thoughts
Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may
Cause brain shrinkage.

10. Talking Rarely
Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of the brain.
