Brain Health for All- Why Should We Care?

The brain is the most amazing and complex organ in the human body.

The human brain consists of 100 billion neurons and 10 trillion connections known as synapses which help us to read, write, watch, learn, plan, think, feel, move, and solve problems on a daily basis.

Brain disorders are the number one cause of disability, number two cause of death and one in three of us have a brain disorder.

Many brain disorders are preventable. Did you that 80% of stroke, 30% epilepsy, 40% dementia could have been prevented in the first place?
