What is it about human brain that makes us smarter than other animals?

World Brain Day 2022: The annual World Brain Day takes place on July 22 and is devoted to a different topic each year. The choice of date was no coincidence: WFN was founded on July 22, 1957. Now, in its 65th year of existence, WFN is focusing its 2022 efforts on fighting all brain disorders and bringing recognition to how disabling they can be.

WFN is committed to being a leader in brain health advocacy. In 2021, WFN created the Brain Health Initiative. Building on that momentum by continuing to share the importance of brain health is key to making an impact on a global scale. This year’s message will show the world just how important brain health is for our overall health.

The primary pillars of this year’s World Brain Day are awareness, prevention, advocacy, education and access.

Awareness:  Brain health is vital for mental, social and physical well-being.
Prevention: Many brain diseases are preventable.
Advocacy:  Global efforts are required for optimal brain health.
Education: Education is key to brain health for all.
Access: Equitable access to resources, treatment and rehabilitation is essential for brain health.

“The human brain is a wonderful creation of nature. Weighing only one and a half kilograms, this organ is a complex structure containing about 100 billion neurons. The brain is like a remote control, controlling all activities of the human body. That said, brain control is essential for the movement and activities of all body parts. If the brain becomes inactive, a person is medically dead.

Keeping in mind the crucial role of the brain in the human body, awareness about the brain and information about its diseases can help maintain good brain health. Statistics show that treatment gap due to awareness issues range from 50%-90% in various parts of the country. For example, a recent industry report (reference link) shows that one out of four people are aware of signs of getting a brain stroke. Patient and public awareness is key, and this can be achieved via public awareness programs led by doctors, hospitals and government organisations.

A good lifestyle plays a very important role in the control of brain diseases. Problems like blood pressure, diabetes, heart diseases, high cholesterol should be strictly controlled. Smoking and alcohol should be avoided. Eat more nutritious foods, avoid fried/oily/  sugary foods. Vegetables, sprouted pulses should be consumed more often. Every day everyone should practice at least 30 to 45 minutes brisk walking, jogging, running, exercise, yoga, meditation etc. to maintain the physical health.”
