phobia of losing brain cells

i'm paranoid about loosing brain cells, be it by walking down the street and being exposed to exhaust gases, second hand smoking, using any sort of substances, holding my breath underwater, banging my head, it is getting really annoying, all i can seem to think about these day is how to avoid potential neurons loss, any advices? i'm 16 years old
