Smoking affects your body and mind. There are several types of research and reports to show how smoking affects your body. According to a report Smoking cannabis ages the brain by an average of 2 to three years.
Marijuana used to ramp up brain aging up to 2.8 years which is not good. It is really harmful to your mind. It is the cause of bipolar disorder or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
Schizophrenics’ brains ages by an average of four years.
One more research on Boozing mind which shows that boozing will work and the age of the organ by 0.6 years.
Brain aging will reduce the flow of blood in the body. It will reduce the blood flow through the organ.
Dr. Daniel Amen author of the Lead study, founder of Amen Clinics, said: “The cannabis abuse finding was especially important, as our culture is starting to see marijuana as an innocuous substance. This study should give us pause about it.”
Researchers examined the blood flow of 128 sections of the individual’s brain. They wanted to analyze how each brain responds and how old that brain can work.
In this research process, the age of the person was considered an important factor to measure the rate of accelerated aging.
Dr. George Perry, from the University of Texas, San Antonio, shared his view on the research by saying: “This is one of the first population-based imaging studies, and these large studies are essential to answer how to maintain brain structure and function during aging.”
This research analyzed that bipolar disorder accelerates brain aging by 1.6 years, with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) speeding it up by 1.4 years.
This research was not found in any direct relationship between depression and brain aging.
Dr. Amen shared the point: “Based on one of the largest brain imaging studies ever done, we can now track common disorders and behaviors that prematurely age the brain.”
“Better treatment of these disorders can slow or even halt the process of brain aging.”
Some Experts in the field gave their point of
Study author Sachit Egan, from Google, a partner in the study, added: “The results indicate that we can predict an individual’s age based on patterns of cerebral blood flow.”
“Additionally, the groundwork has been laid to further explore how common psychiatric disorders can affect the healthy patterns of cerebral blood flow.”
