Can caffeine kill brain cells?
No. The idea that alcohol kills brain cells has long been promoted. The early temperance writers made this assertion and also insisted that the alcohol in their blood could …cause "drunkards" to catch fire and burn alive. This combustion argument against drinking was dropped long ago but many anti-alcohol writers continue to promote the idea that even moderate drinking causes brain cells to die. Scientific medical research has actually demonstrated that the moderate consumption of alcohol is associated with better cognitive (thinking and reasoning) skills and memory than is abstaining from alcohol. Moderate drinking doesn't kill brain cells but helps the brain function better into old age. Studies around the world involving many thousands of people report this finding. Of course, years of alcohol abuse can cause serious neurological damage, including Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome. Harm can be done to message-carrying dendrites on neurons in the cerebellum, a part of the brain involved in learning and physical coordination. But even in such extreme cases, there's a lack of evidence that alcohol kills brain cells. However, abstinence after chronic alcohol abuse enables brains to repair themselves, according to new research involving rats.
It's not that there is anything in caffeine that kills plants, it is the caffeine itself. Caffeine is a toxin produced by some plants to ward off predators, but is lethal to …plant cells when artificially introduced.
Possibly, it is a fact that headbanging rapidly can damage your neck, give you strokes, and possibly kill you.
No. Brain freeze is a headache most commonly associated with the quick consumption of cold substances, such as ice cream. When the cold substance comes into contact with you…r palate or the roof of your mouth and sinus cavities it causes the blood vessels to vasoconstrict or get smaller. As the palate warms the blood vessels dilate. This rapid constriction and dilation is detected by pain receptors that travel to the brain via the trigaminal nerve, which also serves as one of the major nerves for the facial area. Because the pain signal travels with the signals coming from the face, the brain thinks it is feeling pain in the face that isn't really there, this is called referred pain. The only way the brain is effected is how it perceives the information received from the nerve. http://wiki.answers.com/What_does_a_brain_freeze_do_to_the_brain#ixzz17kJwkNDd
Well, Don't watch TV as much, Don't play video games as much, Don't play on the computer as much, Don't listen to as much music, Don't hit yourself in the head, Don't hurt you…r head in general.
Not that I am aware of, no. -It Sure can! Snoring is usually caused by many different factors, quite often it has to do with tissue in the back of the throat or nostrils tha…t somehow block air from entering the body. If your brain can't get enough oxygen, the snoring can become intense. Both loss of sleep and lack of oxygen can contribute to the loss of brain cells.
no cheese does not kill brain cells
On the contrary. The brain needs three things to survive: blood, oxygene and glucose. You must have noticed that when you are tired or sleepy and you go outside to get some fr…esh air you wake up. That's because more oxygen is sent to the brain.
judging by the format of this question... yeah
yes it can kill our brain cells but only for kids not high school and under
yes marijuana does kill your brain cells it has been scientifically proven.
There is no evidence to support this. Brain cells are killed by: Alcohol Drugs Suffering a stroke Lack of exercise Dehydration Concussions Chemo…therapy Smoking tobacco Extreme panic attacks Electrocution Carbon Monoxide poisoning Pesticides Inhaling strong solvents such as paint remover Microwaves (the actual waves, not the appliance itself) Formaldehyde Exposure to radiation Steroids Post traumatic stress disorder Consuming too much water Sensory deprivation Lack of sleep Too much caffeine There is no evidence that gaming "kills" brain cells. It would be far too difficult to conduct an experiment in the area considering you'd have to find participants who do not fall into the points above. Scientists have accepted that we may never fully understand the human brain. As a matter of fact, some games are used to improve brain functions successfully (educational and IQ games). Soldiers and pilots even train using virtual simulations, which are technically games.
