  • Your brain is obviously a very important part of your body. It is one of the largest organs in your body and is the main control center for every function that happens in your day-to-day life. It carries a heck of a lot of information around and has an endless list of responsibilities!
  • The brain is also surprisingly delicate. In recent years, the World Health Organization released what they consider to be the top 10 brain-damaging habits that are common among people today.

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

    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.

    It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.

    It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer disease.

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

    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.

    Sleeping with the head covered increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease the concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects.

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

    Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may cause brain shrinkage.

    Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of the brain.
