10 Of the most dangerous brain-damaging habits you need to stop immediately

By Andrew Alpin, 3 March 2017


The brain is the body’s central processing unit. And just as the CPU of a computer though the most important part, still depends on various minor components to functions well because if not, it shuts down. The brain too works in similar ways. Although it is the main organ in your physiology that coordinates the way you function, it still needs to be in perfect health and the only way to do that is to look after your entire body.

According to world health body WHO, there are ten ways to damage your brain through poor habits of lifestyle and nutrition. Here they are.

1Skipping Breakfast


Skipping breakfast even if you’re on a weight-loss routine is the most dangerous thing you can do. After a long interval of fasting after dinner from the previous night, the body needs to be replenished with electrolytes and nutrients which influence the transport of oxygen to the brain. Thus you are depriving your brain of vital nourishment which will lead to degeneration of the brain.

2Sleep Deprivation


This is one of the worst things you can do to your entire body let alone your brain. You need no less than 7 to 8 hours of healthy sleep to regenerate your body cells and tissues. Brain cells especially need rest after a prolonged period of work.
