I came across this list today online of "The 50 worst things for your brain"
Heroin was number 39. I am wondering if there is truth to this? Of course, they did not list references.
However, I would like to know if there is truth to these claims or if anyone has come across similar findings.
"39) Using heroin – As you probably expected, using heroin will kill your brain cells. Heroin has been linked to Alzheimer-like brain damage. Opiate use has been associated with sped up aging in the brain. Heroin causes nerve-cell damage in essential parts of the brain. Don’t let a drug like Heroin ruin your brain and your life!"
