It's the holding your breath part that kills brain cells.
Holding your breath does not kill brain cells.
"holding your breath does not kill braincells"
I may be wrong, but I thought that if you held it in for extended periods of time it will kill braincells.
But somebody said it above, everything kills braincells, bumping your head will kill a few braincells, heading a soccer ball will do it. So toke on and forget about it.
Yes it does!
No, holding your breath does not kill brain cells. Your brain has to go at least a few minutes without oxygen for it to start experiencing brain damage.
Hey CheebaMonkey , If you don't know what your talking about please don't comment . Making sh.. up doesn't fly well around here !
I don't know what I'm talking about?!?!
Let's stop this flame war before it starts. Come on people...let's just get along
OK uh maybe I can help. I doubt it makes any significant difference, like what someone said earlier in the thread. Holding the smoke in does, however, mess up your lungs after a while.
holding your breath kills brain cells, click me.
Brain damage is a lot different than killing brain cells, and I seriously do think you are wrong.
I couldn't really find any links with info, but jaman has.
Holding your breath= no oxygen. No oxygen= killing brain cells. It doesn't do any actual harm, but it does kill brain cells.
isn't Cheeba an OFF TOPIC DRUG ? CheebaMonky
You were warned to chill out.
By the way...Cheeba is slang for, you guessed it, marijuana which is rather on topic.
Holding your breath does not kill brain cells, however if you personally feel it does then I suggest you refrain from holding your breath.
Consider this evience however before you take Jama's word over Cheeba's...or even (dare I say it) mine: if holding your breath killed brain cells wouldn't every deep water diver (that is a sport by the way done without gear), under water swimmer, and 2 year old who throws a temper tantrum, would be brain dead by now.
Oh and to answer the original question:
DOES POT KILL BRAIN CELLS?
No. It keeps them alive
Try reading this article...from our friends at the pharmeceutical company GlaxoSmithKline (makers of such favorites as Paxil, Tums and Geritol)
Link to List of Scientific Articles
....from a slightly more reliable source than Angelfire
I couldn't find the info that you speak of MaMa ? is it in that site somewhere ?
how about this excerpt from just one of the 20 articles quoted
"Journal of Neurochemistry
Volume 80 Issue 3 Page 448 - February 2002
Neuroprotective properties of cannabinoids against oxidative stress: role of the cannabinoid receptor CB1
Giovanni Marsicano,* Bernd Moosmann, Heike Hermann,* Beat Lutz*,1 and Christian Behl,1
Neuroprotective effects have been described for many can-nabinoids in several neurotoxicity models. However, the exact mechanisms have not been clearly understood yet."
ok , so this is what I was thinking about . It gets a little tricky , but on this , I was rong .
cheeba , SLANG for marijuana
Cheeva, Mexican term for heroin click link
my mistake , but I still say that some brain cells are destroud when you hold your breath for a long period of time .
ps im stoned
I guess I don't get it ?
want to have a trippy experience .
Type the term cheeba monkey in to any search engine .
tons of stuff comes up ( thousands of different things) that have both terms cheeba and monkey in them .
And for the life of me I still cant make a connection with Cheeba and Monkey.
Man am I RIPT !
peace Cheeba monkey
Please don't hate me cuz I'm an idiot :sulkoff:
Thank you Mamabudz
No harm done jaman.
Let us smoke together so there can only be peace.
Oh and Super Woman, when you hold your breath, all the oxygen does not instantly vanish from your body. You have have some flowing in your blood stream. If you were to pass out and then still continue to not breathe, then you could kill brain cells.
