Dr Shannon Klekociuk

Studies consistently show that taking drugs such as cannabis, cocaine, ecstasy and heroin, can have major negative consequences for our cognitive functioning and our overall health. After all, these substances are toxic to the brain.

研究一致表明,服用大麻,可卡因,摇头丸和海洛因等毒品可对我们的认知功能和整体健康产生重大负面影响。 毕竟,这些物质对大脑有毒害作用。


Research has been unable to make a direct link with the use of illicit drugs and the development of diseases that cause dementia.

研究发现使用非法药物不能与引起认知症的疾病的发展直接相关。


It has been suggested that taking illicit drugs might influence your lifestyle in different ways,  that then increases your risk of developing dementia.

有人建议,服用违禁药物可能会以不同的方式影响你的生活方式,然后会增加你患认知症的风险。


For example, taking illicit drugs might lead to changes in your blood pressure. Alternatively, taking illicit drugs might lead you to live a more sedentary lifestyle.

例如,服用非法药物可能会导致您的血压变化。 或者,服用非法药物可能会导致你以更久坐的生活方式活着。


Both of these factors might increase your risk of developing dementia.

这两个因素可能会增加您发展为认知症的风险。


So, while there is no direct evidence linking illicit drug use to dementia, their use has major ramifications for your physical and mental health, and is best avoided.

因此,尽管没有直接证据将非法药物使用与认知症联系起来,但是它们的使用对于您的身体和精神健康有重大影响,因此最好避免。


Future long-term studies will help determine whether there is a direct link between illicit drug use and the development of dementia.

未来的长期研究将有助于确定非法药物的使用与认知症的发展之间是否存在直接的联系。
