Older people suffer far greater damage from strokes, head injuries, and infections than younger people, because the aging of the brain will damage the cells that support the central nervous system.
It may also be why they develop diseases that destroy cells that connect to the nervous system and the muscles.
Cells that support the central nervous system are chronically affected by any infection, vaccination, or exposure to a source of inflammation that causes their nervous systems to degenerate much faster.
As we age our antioxidant network is less efficient, putting us at a higher risk of damage from free radicals and cell damage.
Our detoxification systems are often impaired as well, and this makes us more susceptible to a number of environmental toxins as well as drug complications.
Finally, immune deficiency is common and increases one’s risk of autoimmune diseases, cancer, chronic inflammation and infections as well as making it difficult to cure infections. This immune deficiency can damage the cells that support the central nervous system which can lead to developing Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Huntington’s, Parkinson’s, etc.
You asked, what can I do about it?
You can reduce your chances buy combing exercise with a healthy diet with plenty of vegetables and fruits. Supplement with vitamin E and C, flavonoids (from plants), selenium, copper, zinc, and manganese.
