Marijuana Eases The Mind But Hurts The Heart – Stanford Human Study

FACTS: Smart people at the University of Stanford say marijuana is bad for you. Not in a cool way, either. A very recent human study at Stanford Medical show that the more regular a user is of the electric lettuce, the more prone they are to cardiovascular side effects; atherosclerosis, myocardial infarction (heart attack), heart failure and life-threatening arrhythmias.

THC, “Tha Happy Chemical”, causes inflammation in endothelial cells which make up the inner lining of blood vessels in the heart. Genistein, a soy derivative, helps mitigate the harmful effects of THC has on endothelial cells.

So just drink soy milk. You’ll be fine.

QUOTES: Instructor of medicine Mark Chandy, MD, PhD, “Marijuana has a significantly adverse effect on the cardiovascular system…As more states legalize marijuana use, I expect we will begin to see a rise in heart attacks and strokes in the coming years. Our studies of human cells and mice clearly outline how THC exposure initiates a damaging molecular cascade in the blood vessels. It’s not a benign drug.”
