DRUGS AND BRAIN DAMAGE
A study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease examined blood flow to the brain, and it found that heavy marijuana users consistently have lower-than-normal blood flow levels than non-users. That puts them at risk for insufficient oxygen levels in the brain, which can lead to acute harmful health effects.
We cannot live without a healthy and functioning brain. What happens to our brains if we use drugs such as alcohol, marijuana or ecstasy?
The list of subjects that have as much false data on them as drugs and alcohol would be a short one indeed. The subject of drugs and alcohol is a subject that few people understand very well. And that is not helped by the fact that there is also a lot of misinformation on the subject.
Drugs work by changing the brain’s chemistry and by affecting the neuron signaling in many ways. It goes without saying that long-term drug use will no doubt take its toll on the brain.
