10 BRAIN DAMAGING HABITS:
#BE AWARE!

1. No Breakfast: People who do nottake breakfast are going to have a lower blood sugar level. Th is leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain causing braindegeneration.

2. Overeating: It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.

3. Smoking: It causes multiple brainshrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer disease.

4. High Sugar Consumption: Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.

5. Air Pollution: The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.

6. Sleep Deprivation: Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells.

7. Head covered while sleeping: Sleeping with the head covered, increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects.

8. Working your brain during illness : Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well asdamage the brain.

9. Lacking in stimulating thoughts: Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may cause brain shrinkage.

10. Talking Rarely: Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of the brain.

I disagree with no 1 partially.

Not having breakfast that means fasting.

Do you know that fasting improves the brain?

Oyibo too dey confuse person self aah.

Don't fast yourself till death, just do the right thing at the right time.

Don't leave it idle, use your brain.

this is very very true because it causes depression. Mostly men suffer from this cos women have more than enough suitors unlike us...
