How to protect yourself from brain injury

Brain injury prevention goes beyond whether you wear a helmet. Two people with the same injury can have two wildly different reactions—one mild, one debilitating—based on the health of their brain prior to injury. 

Although we can’t necessarily control whether a brain injury happens from a fall, a car accident, or a blow to the head, we can affect how well our brain copes with the trauma. More than 1.7 million people sustain a brain injury each year, and more than 5 million people are disabled due to brain injuries.

Is there a way to predict your likelihood of getting certain diseases and, more importantly, to identify extra steps you need to take in order to not get those diseases?

The answer is now YES.  With advancing technology, some labs in the country now offer ways to test you for minor genetic defects or SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms), in order to identify areas where your body does not quite work as optimally as possible and treatments you can use to make up for that.
