STUDY: Marijuana Does Not Cause Lung Cancer
Straight info from a massive study that just keeps on giving.
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine released a report in January that looked at literally more than 10,700 weed studies from the past. The massive document (errr book?) is about 400 pages. Those 400 pages hold a lot of information, but it's clear that weed needs more studies because a lot of these conclusive studies are inconclusive.
Still, many news and lifestyle outlets are (still) dissecting the data from that massive report, and some recent uncovered threads include something big: Marijuana doesn't cause lung cancer. Or any other kind of shitty cancers associated with smoking.
From The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine:
Regarding the link between marijuana and cancer, the committee found evidence that suggests smoking cannabis does not increase the risk for cancers often associated with tobacco use—such as lung and head and neck cancers. The committee also found limited evidence that cannabis use is associated with one sub-type of testicular cancer and insufficient evidence that cannabis use by a mother or father during pregnancy leads to a greater risk of cancers in the child.
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine has given the weed world the study that just keeps on giving.
