A study carried out by doctors at Royal Perth Hospital in Australia evaluated 30 patients who were treated for problems related to the use of drugs classified as amphetamines. With an average age of just over 26 years, most of the patients studied had a history of drug use that spanned several years.
To their surprise, the researchers found that one in five showed evidence of already having suffered a likely drug-related brain injury. Professor Fatovich stated, “We thought beforehand if we found one in 10 had abnormalities, we would have been impressed. One in five was alarming.”
He went on to say that this findings could add to evidence of amphetamine’s other serious long-term effects, including depression, anxiety, psychosis and memory disturbance as well as increasing the risk of stroke. Our sincere thanks Professor Fatovich and Royal Perth Hospital associates team for your work that further reveals
the damaging effects of these harmful drugs substances.
May all be graced with lives that are intoxicant-free for the highest benefit to ourselves, loved ones and society. http://english.people.com.cn/90001/90782/90880/7129595.htmlhttp://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/nation/evidence-mounts-on-the-debilitating-effects-of-long-term-drug-use/story-e6frg6nf-1225914504417
