Neurodegenerative diseases are a range of health conditions that affect the neurons, or building blocks, of your brain and spinal cord. Because these neurons don't have the ability to repair themselves, any damage can affect the functionality of your nervous system.
Damage to your nervous system can result in issues with ataxias, or body movement, or in your mental functioning also known as dementias.

Neurodegenerative diseases occur when the nerve cells in your nervous system lose functionality and die off. The risks of developing neurodegenerative disease increase as you get older.
You may also be at an increased risk due to your family history and a variety of environmental factors, such as exposure to toxins, pollution, and other contaminants over your lifetime.
Additionally, your lifestyle habits and dietary choices may play a role in your possible development of a neurodegenerative disorder.
