Did you know that your brain truly is the nerve or control center of all that you do? You brain has over 100 billion nerve cells called neurons and uses 20% of the oxygen and fuel your blood carries. If you are thinking really hard, it can use up to 50%! All of this is contained in a 3 pound complex organ in your head!
When you stop and think about all that our brains are responsible for from breathing and heart rate to processing the world around us and planning complex decisions, it truly is amazing. So why do we take it for granted?
