how can disorders and ailments of the nervous system be prevented?

there are so many disorders. ailments of the nervous system which have may have different causes and in effect, different ways of preventing them. a lot of them have no known cause and several of them have no way of preventing its occurrence. diseases like parkinson's dse, multiple sclerosis have no real proven ways of prevention. there may be some theories as how to minimize getting brain cancer but again there is no sure way. for strokes, you would usually avoid the same risk factors that cause a heart attack like controlling blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol, smoking, etc. but again, you may find someone who may have lived his life as healthy as one can but still suffer a stroke.
moral of the story, live your life in healthy way but still try to enjoy some of the joys of life and leave everything to fate. we cant live our lives worrying about things that are beyond our control.  (+ info)
