New Delhi: We need to take special care of our brain as it is one of the most delicate organs of your body. One should eat the right food as it is very necessary for physical as well as mental health. But there are some foods that can kill our brain cells.
Here are some things that can destroy our brain brains:
Avoid smoking as it can kill your brain cells as cigarette smoke contains carbon monoxide. It is a potentially lethal gas as it attaches to the heme part of our blood and also does not allow it to carry oxygen to other organs including our brain.
Studies have found that moderate to binge drinking can also damages our brain and also reduces the production of brain cells by about 40%. So, one should avoid or stop drinking alcohol.
Air pollution can also damage our brain cell as it can cause persistent inflammation of your airways leading to the death of our brain cells due to lack of oxygen reaching the brain cells.
Nowadays, the fruits and vegetables we buy and eat are laced with large amounts of pesticides and it has been known to affect our brain cells.
