The brain is an organ that’s comprised of a large mass of nerve tissue that’s covered within the skull. It plays vital functions in just about every major body system.
Some of the major functions of the brain include:
• The brain is responsible for processing sensory information.
• The brain helps in regulating blood pressure and breathing.
• The brain is vital for the release of hormones.
Some of the things you consume that causes damage to your brain include.
Alcohol can lead to detectable impairments in memory after having a few drinks and, as the number of alcohol increases, so does the degree of impairment. Too much intake of alcohol, especially when drank quickly and on an empty stomach, can cause a blackout, or an interval of time for which the intoxicated person cannot recall key details of events or even entire events.
With a high intake of sugar, your memory can begin to fade, and your thinking speed can begin to slow down as more and more sugar becomes present in your bloodstream around your brain, which has been indicated to be harmful to the brain cells present there. It can even kill your brain cells.
Studies have shown a direct link between smoking and brain damage. Scientists have discovered that a compound rich in tobacco makes white blood cells in the central nervous system attack healthy cells, causing severe neurological damage.
Ensure you lessen your intake of these 3 things to prevent brain damage.
