Warning to gay men
      #134526 - 02/16/05 08:47 AM

"Methamphetamine (MA) has immunosuppressive properties."

Yu QL; Larson DF; Watson RR. Heart disease, methamphetamine and AIDS. Life Sciences 73(2): 129-140, 2003. (80 refs.)

Methamphetamine (MA) not only affects the nervous system but also has cardiac toxicity and immunosuppressive properties.


Crystal Meth also burns up at a super fast rate the vitamins, minerals and nutrients the body demands to function properly--the result is less resistance to infection and disease.

Valid and important information. In addition to the physiologal effects the psychological impact is the loss of vital knowledge regarding safe/unsafe sexual practice and in many an increase in sexual arousal with heightened libido impulse (horniness). Meth is a killer. Please stay away from this beast.
