Question If Cannabis Smoking Didnít Adversely Impact Lung Function, would you have heard?



Quote:

here are the findings of yet another just published study that the mainstream media will undoubtedly ignore.


'Cumulative cannabis use was associated with higher forced vital capacity, total lung capacity, functional residual capacity, and residual volume. These findings were similar amongst those who did not smoke tobacco.

Cannabis appears to have different effects on lung function to those of tobacco.'

The study doesn't say weed doesn't adversely affect lung function, only less so than tobacco. The study link contains a link to a study by the same group where they state "the trend suggests that continued cannabis smoking has the potential to result in clinically important impairment of lung function".

yes, lets put this in perspective. Any kind of smoke that is repeatedly inhaled into our lungs ain't going to positively effect them. Now if you're saying the smoke is less carcinogenic than tobacco, sure that's probably true.

If you actually read the journal article...which I have, they don't say anything about one being better than the other or weather its healthy or not. All the study suggests is that there are different long-term physiological effects of smoking cannabis when compared to tobacco. If you read the article it also explains that most of the test group that smoked tobacco also smoked cannabis, as well as other limitations such as there was no control for the amount smoked, or how it was smoked. Basically, when reading a news article on any subject you should try to find the peer reviewed published article. Otherwise a media journalist can chose aspects of the study they wish to publicize and you don't get the whole truth.

"In conclusion, cannabis and tobacco smoking are each associated with a distinct pattern of lung function changes in young adults. Cannabis was associated with evidence of hyperinflation and increased large airway resistance, with little evidence of airflow obstruction or impairment of gas transfer, whereas tobacco was associated with airflow obstruction, gas-trapping and lower transfer factors. These findings suggest that smoking cannabis and tobacco have different physiological consequences for the lungs."
