Avoid Doing These Things, They Destroy Your Brain Cells

There's no denying the brain's significance to your overall health and well-being. It's one of your biggest organs, and it's the nerve center for everything that goes on in your life. It's in charge of transporting an enormous amount of data and performing an infinite series of tasks.

Similarly, the brain is remarkably vulnerable. The World Health Organization has recently published a list of what they believe to be the top ten brain-damaging behaviours practiced by modern society.

1. Skipping Breakfast

Those who skip breakfast tend to have lower levels of glucose in their blood. This results in brain degeneration due to an inadequate amount of nutrients reaching the brain.

2 Cigarettes

It leads to numerous areas of the brain shrinking and may eventually cause Alzheimer's disease.

High Sucrose Intake, Factor No. 3

Lack of proper nourishment due to an excess of sugar can stunt mental growth and even kill.

Lack of Sleep, Number Four

The human brain uses up the most oxygen of any organ. If you breathe dirty air, your brain won't get as much oxygen as it needs, and your cognitive abilities will suffer as a result.

5 Mental exercise when sick

Constant mental exertion or studying when ill has been linked to a decline in cognitive performance.

Rarely Communicating 6

Conversations that stimulate the mind will increase productivity.

7 Keep your head covered when you sleep

Closing one's eyes when sleeping can increase the amount of carbon dioxide in the blood and reduce the amount of oxygen, which can have detrimental effects on brain tissue.
