HOW DRUGS AFFECT THE HEART
It’s known that drug and alcohol abuse has a harmful effect on one’s cardiovascular system. However, new data suggests that the real threat of drugs on one's heart may have been entirely underestimated.
If you’ve had an ear to the ground on the recent drug news and its media coverage, you may have heard whisperings and suggestions that psychedelics, hallucinogens, and a few other designer drugs are supposedly “helpful” or beneficial for addressing certain mental health issues.
When you use drugs, they travel through your bloodstream. The drugs in the blood veins and arteries will eventually pass through the heart, and once there they often have effects which can cause serious and potentially fatal consequences.
