A Neurologist with Alpha Medcare, a research centre in Iba, Lagos, said inhaling smoke in any form is dangerous to health and capable of causing loss of memory.

Dr Patrick Okoh, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) yesterday said that inhaled smoke could be from a car’s exhaust, cigarettes, cannabis and other substances.

According to the neurologist, an introduction of smoke into the brain creates unwanted particles known as radicals that take the cells prisoner.

He said loss of memory was a social disorder.

The neurologist said conscious or unconscious inhalation of substances into the human system should be avoided.

“Many of our young ones are in the habit of inhaling substances, believing that it will make them feel high and alert.

“But on the contrary, it is a dangerous practice capable of leading to withdrawal in the persons involved,’’ Okoh said.

He warned those in the habit of inhaling smoke to desist as the consequences were harmful and could be anti-social.

He said a driver who indulged in smoking of cigarettes or other substances could easily forget himself and withdraw into abstract fantasy while driving.

Okoh added that this sort of distraction while driving had resulted in numerous road mishaps.

He urged officers of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) to monitor drivers’ conduct carefully this yuletide especially with a view to curtailing road accidents.

“ Everybody must be extremely security- conscious in our environment and people should be very careful of some objects they see in refuse dumps’’, Abubakar said.

He also urged the media to lead the fight against Boko Haram terrorists by being objective and upholding national interest.

This is a very informative post! Thanks! I agree that smoking is bad and can cause damage. But what about people who use Medical Cannabis in order to relieve pain, stress, anxiety etc.? They have to smoke weed instead of taking a ton of pills every day, so there are always pros and cons of every situation and decision.
