Do you truly know what the dangers of meth are to the body? Meth has many dangers to the body, for example meth causes high heart rates and it also can make your teeth fall out. Meth also can do damage to the liver. Meth is a drug that has become easily to find on the streets and people also cook in what they call labs. In those labs there are many dangerous and flammable chemicals. If something goes wrong that meth lab is going to blow up. The people who do meth will ruin not just their lives but the lives of others if that meth lab blows up. Meth is a drug that is easily addicted to, after one use the person is usually hooked on meth. The person will put their health at risk and keep the dealers busy just to get the next high. The day after the person uses the drug they began to feel sick, they also get depressed and guilty about there actions. There are many different forms a person can use meth. I have included a table of the different ways that a person can use the drug. Smoking meth Snorting meth Shooting up oral The impure form of taking in meth. It effects the teeth and very dangerous to the lungs. It is a powerful nasal decongestant and users that usually snort it have clear nasal passages.

It also makes the person very paranoid and they usually start seeing things that are truly there. “Meth use is usually hard to detect at first. However, it is easily revealed if the observer knows what warning signs to look for. Meth users exhibit a number of physical and psychological conditions that can be identified with meth. Among them are: dilated pupils, insomnia, decreased appetite and possible weight loss, increased agitation and physical activity, excited speech, intense paranoia, possible hallucinations or delusions, episodes of sudden, violent anger, repetitious behaviors such as pick at skin, tooth loss, acne/sores, increased sweating/body odor”.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
