Seven things that kill brain cells

My previous post listed seven things that cause new brain cells to grow, taken from a talk by Dean Ornish. Here’s the corresponding list from the same talk of things that decrease brain cells.

  1. Saturated fat
  2. Sugar
  3. Nicotine
  4. Opiates
  5. Cocaine
  6. Alcohol  in excess
  7. Chronic stress

One thought on “Seven things that kill brain cells
