Do people who smoke mary jane really lose brain cells?

Do people who smoke mary jane really lose brain cells?

Brain function: The research is equivocal about actual brain cell loss with use of marijuana. (mri scans don't show this.) however, brain function definitely changes for the worse while under the influence -- and possibly longer, especially with chronic use. http://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/research-reports/marijuana-abuse/how-does-marijuana-use-affect-your-brain-body. ...Read more

In your opinion, which specialty has the smartest docs? The nicest? The least nice? My vote: smartest = pathology; nicest = pediatrics; least nice = it's a tie: endocrinology and vascular surgery.

In your opinion, which specialty has the smartest docs? The nicest? The least nice? My vote: smartest = pathology; nicest = pediatrics; least nice = it's a tie: endocrinology and vascular surgery.

Value judgments: Being human, physicians have varying personalities ("niceness") and all have intelligence or they wouldn't be in medicine. People have value judgments, though. For instance, many physicians told me i was "too smart" to go into psychiatry.

Do people who smoke mary jane really get dumber?

Do people who smoke mary jane really get dumber?

Actually some very: Smart folks smoke mj, but they act very dumb while under the influence. They think they are profound and brilliant, but they really are just stoned. Many not so smart people smoke, and they do not get any brighter afterward. It can be psychoaddictive and can tempt you to smoke and do nothing else.

what is best science re: flaxseed and  prostate cancer?

Maybe: This article says flaxseed is bad for prostate cancer, and in fact it might be. If you search the medical literature (www.Pubmed.Com), you will find scientific studies showing that flaxseed oil inhibits prostate cancer, and studies showing flaxseed oil makes prostate cancer more aggressive.
