There are many things out of our control, and our environment is one of them.
Some of the things in our environment can contribute to brain deterioration without us being able to do much about it, but there are many things we may be doing every day that we have control over that could be causing brain deterioration without us even realizing it.

1. Skipping Vitamin B12
According to the NYU Langone Medical Centre, even a mild vitamin B12 deficiency could impair brain function.
Problems with memory and mental fogginess are the most common signs that you have a vitamin B12 deficiency.
Studies that were taken from the U.S. Framingham trial found that as many as 1 in every 4 persons is deficient in B12.
Also, because vitamin B12 is only present in foods that come from animals, this means vegans and some vegetarians could be severely deficient in this ‘energy’ vitamin as it is crucial for the body to be able to produce energy.
The top 3 richest sources of vitamin B12 come from shellfish, liver and mackerel fish.
