Brain Shrinkage

Brain Shrinkage

Do not let that brain of yours shrink.

We have just come across two fascinating articles from the LA Times which talks about how neuron scientists have discovered that not only can poor diet habits shrink the brain but so too can too much dieting. Diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity, which can be all caused by bad dieting, can contribute to the brain shrinking. However, it doesn’t stop there; apparently dieting can cause certain brain cells to start self cannibalising as well which leads to a hunger response. 

So I guess this leads to the conclusion that a balanced diet is the best one. It also gets me thinking about how best take care of the brain. Neuron scientists are only just discovering the power and the inside workings on the brain. I would love to know what the effects an Indian Head Massage has on re-generating the brain. Maybe the Neuron boffins will one day make a few experiments and find out.
