Cocaine & Ecstasy use changes DNA

http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmp...caine_dna_dc_4

Apparently Cocaine or Ecstasy alters your DNA, provoking genetic mutations. I don't really know how extensive the changing of the DNA is since the article is brief.

Just a heads up to those who know users. I KNOW noone on this site uses it.

Good thing I don't want kids.

So I guess I'm free to mutate my genes however I please.

I suppose I'll have to hit that big red abort button then, eh?

I call ********. Coca Cola had cocaine in it in the early 1900's, and my grandfather turned out fine. In fact, hes still smarter than me.

DNA mutations are relatively common. One could probably make a list of causes a mile long. UV rays, different types of foods, errors in the transcription process which are not readily explainable. The list could go on and on. This is one of the ways that cancer cells begin.

Not to say that the mutations from ecstacy and cocaine are not dangerous. Any type of mutation is potentially dangerous and lethal. It depends how much damage there is, and to what part of the DNA sequence.

Not a good thing to be messing around with.

However, and this shouldn't be taken as an endorsement of drug use, evolutionary theory is completely based on DNA mutation.

Well, MDMA does turn users into complete morons with no hope of getting those brain cells back, but then again that could be said about a lot of things.

Hardly BS.

Back in the early 1900's, they also knew little-to-nothing about the risks of smoking, fetal alcohol syndrome, cancer-asbestos corrolation, dangers of x-rays (used to have x-rays outside pharmacies, for a nickle you could stand on one and see your feet), benfits of antibiotics or even what DNA was!!!!

That one person survived unscathed (BTW, no real way of knowing that either if he had his children before DNA changes) doesn't mean the risk is any less. Additionally, cocaine was in coca-cola for only a short time and diluted. You were not getting anywhere near the exposure you would get from using cocaine directly.

No, but it'll make you feel like one occasionally.

I just watched X-Men 2 the other day and man I'm going to be doing some serious coke action then. In the movie there were these hot mutant chicks (I think I have a crush on Anna Paquin now) and guys that could do cool things with fire, ice, and various other things.

If it happens in movies it's real, so lets bring on the coke!

You're probably kidding, but Coca-Cola had only trace amounts of cocaine. You could probably drink cases and never ingest what would amount to a single line of coke.
