High Iron and Copper levels deteriorate mental health

Though the etiological factors of many neurodegenerative disorders are still a mystery, researchers have encountered a common findings in all the neurologically affected patients. These common findings were the presence of DNA-attacking oxygen molecule variant and high levels of iron and copper in brain. Abnormally high levels of iron and copper in brain might deteriorate mental health by promoting the production of DNA-attacking oxygen molecule and interfering with the repair process of DNA. The commonest neurodegenerative disorders that are caused by these debilitating changes are Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
