Doctor: Inhalant Abuse Worst for Brain Functioning

We all know inhalant abuse is bad. However,this doctor has scanned over 55,000 brains and says inhalant abuse damages the brain function worse than any other drug. Using a SPECT scan, he noticed decreased blood flood to the brain which inhibits one's ability to process. The SPECT scan produces a 3-D image of organs to examine how they function.

Specifically, he references a brain scan from a 17 year old inhalant abuser who had used inhalants for 8 months. Admitted for hallucination, the scans revealed decreased blood to several areas in his brain.
