Ecstasy shrinks brain!!-researchers unveil the secrets of MDMA.,,,,

Drug abuse,has been at its best of raise over the past decade or two and with the increased incidence of consumption of drugs in teens.Researchers at a conference sponsored by the National Institute on Drug Abuse said that the drug known as ecstasy has a negative impact on blood flow to parts of the brain and that the effect can persist for weeks.

The neurotoxic effects of the drug appear to decrease several areas of brain activity, and long-term use appears to decrease the volume of the brain.

Gaylord Ellison, a researcher with almost 40 years experience studying the neurotoxic effects of amphetamines said that ecstasy degenerates the axons in several areas of the brain.
