How much oxygen does the brain use?

Your brain uses 20% of the oxygen that enteres your bloodstream, yet only makes up 2% of  your body mass. This makes is very vulnerable to oxygen deprivation.

Keep deep breathing to keep your brain working at it's best.

This explains why we stop thinking clearly when anxious, as in fight or flight,  as our Central Nervous System sends more available oxygen to our limbs.
