Still another reason to not smoke, eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly and avoid environmental pollutants such as secondhand smoke. Charles Emery, PhD, professor of psychology at The Ohio State University in Columbus Ohio, reported on research on lung function and its influence on brain health. The researchers followed health date on 832 people between the ages of 50 and 85 for almost twenty years. They found that reduced lung function due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) but also in otherwise healthy adults led to cognitive deterioration.
The researchers theorized that reduced oxygen in the blood due to poor lung function could slow down signals between cells in the brain. If you need to get motivated to quit smoking, exercise regularly, avoid secondhand pollutants or exercise regularly, hypnosis can be a valuable tool to increase your chances for better brain health.
