new study asserts that adults who use marijuana might be more likely to suffer a heart attack or have a stroke.
The subjects in the study who used marijuana were 26% more likely to have had a stroke, and 10% more likely to have developed heart failure.
Lead study author Dr. Aditi Kalla, cardiology fellow at the Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, said, “Even when we corrected for known risk factors, we still found a higher rate of both stroke and heart failure in these patients. That leads us to believe that there is something else going on besides just obesity or diet-related cardiovascular side effects.”
Health records of over 20 million patients aged 18 to 55 who had been admitted at more than 1,000 hospitals in the United States were analyzed. It was unknown whether the subjects had smoked or ingested the marijuana.
