Researchers Think That Environmental Pollutants are a Significant Cause of Neurodegeneration

Environmental Pollutants Cause of Neurodegeneration

Summary: Neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s have increased significantly in the last few decades. Researchers think this rise cannot be explained solely based on genetics or population aging. It appears that environmental pollutants are playing a significant role in the rise of neurodegenerative disorders. Humans are now being regularly exposed to 80,000 chemicals, and […]

RESEARCHERS FIND HOW EXERCISE MAY HELP PREVENT NEURODEGENERATION

Exercise May Help Prevent Neurodegeneration

Summary: Exercise can help boost brain health in multiple ways. It may help by improving metabolic health and thus indirectly slowing down neurodegeneration. However, a new study now suggests that exercise can directly impact the brain as it can significantly boost neurotransmitters and growth factors. Thus, the study found that 30 days of exercise can […]
