how to kill your brain with bad habits

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it noticeably influences your performance, endurance, and emotional situation. During the first few hours of the day, the brain allots nutrients to continue “managing” the physiological processes after the long fast it has been subjected to. If you don’t supply it with energy, it will need to use reserves and it will have to make an extra effort to maintain correct functioning. A lack of breakfast could cause general lack of energy, loss of concentration and memory, bad moods, poor physical and intellectual performance. Eat a substantial and healthy breakfast.

Smoking
The terrible habit of smoking considerably reduces brain matter as well we oxygen supply to the brain. It has been proven to promote the appearance of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s disease. Also, heterocyclic amines that are released during cigarette combustion interfere with correct DNA reproduction, leading to mutations that cause cancerous cells

The predominance of refined sugars, white flour, fried food, and packaged food in the diet while also lacking sufficient amounts of vegetables, fruits and fiber, promotes an accumulation of harmful substances in the body. This increases the development of tumors, it warps immune system functioning, causes malnutrition and interferes with neurological development.

Constant exposure to contaminated environments
The brain needs a constant supply of oxygen, but different toxic substances could interfere with the exchange of gasses, the transportation and processing of oxygen to the cells, leading to reduced brain efficiency.
