Scientists discover how crystal meth causes cells to age rapidly and die

Recommended Posts


    Hello guest!


Researchers used test rats and mice on their experiments to discover that the acceleration caused by meth within each cell involves a specific protein, known as nuclear factor kappa beta. When affected by meth, this protein triggers the rapid production of the lipid molecule ceramide that regulates energy and nutrients within a cell. With the dramatic increase of ceramide, every aspect of the cell's metabolism speeds up until it is dead.
