Can caffeine kill brain cells?
If you were to take a culture of brain cells on a petri dish and submerge them in a caffeine solution, it probably would. But in people, is drinking coffee going to kill brain cells? No. Even very high amounts would not.

No, LSD is very non-toxic compared to most recreational drugs. It does not cause any physical damage to the body or the brain. All risks associated with LSD are psychological …risks, it can be dangerous, but it wont cause physical damage unless thousands of doses are consumed at once. But I must stress that the psychological dangers are very real, and not fully understood yet, and that LSD should be no means be regarded as "safe".
No it does not kill brain cells, people say that it kills them and hurts you mentally. Its been researched by scientist and the truth of the matter is that it has no effect at… all. Its perfectly fine to do. No It offers neuroprotection, meaning it protects nerves and brain cells. There is also some evidence that it may facilitate brain cell development. The US DHS confirms the scientific research that marijuana can be used as a neuroprotectant and antioxidant, it hold the patent to these uses patent no. 6630507
Not really, no. Sniffing sharpies very much can cause brain damage because of the specific chemical solvents they contain, in which case certain brain cells will sto…p functioning due to toxicity; this is most likely where this urban legend comes from. While it is not true, it is good to heed the warnings anyways, because though sniffing sharpies will get you high, over a longer term period they can cause various detriments such as weight (muscle) loss and depression. However, if you are worried about just using them, don't. I like the smell of sharpies myself, I just don't sniff them and I am fine.

It's not that there is anything in caffeine that kills plants, it is the caffeine itself. Caffeine is a toxin produced by some plants to ward off predators, but is lethal to …plant cells when artificially introduced.
no it does not heroin enters the brain and is converted into morphine which binds to receptors in your brain and alters the way they transmit signals. it does not straight u…p kill brain cells, just temporarily changes the way they function.
Actually, anger induces emotional stress, which takes a toll on brain cells by increasing adrenergic activity via the HPA (hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal) axis. This cause…s increases in cortisol, a stress hormone. Emotional stress also induces cumulative cellular damage due to increases in what is called oxidative stress (the increased metabolic breakdown of cellular materials leading to free radical production). While young persons have bodies that have much less cumulative damage (due to youth), and have active DNA and cellular repair mechanisms, as people get older, these repair mechanisms accumulate damage themselves (through environmental factors and even the cells' own metabolic processes), and they work less effectively. Since emotional/oxidate stress has been shown to increase the "load" on cells, increasing the rate of this damage, the older a person gets, and the more stress the body is under, the more likely their cells will be unable to repair this damage, and the more likely that brain cell death will increase. Now, there are many other, more pronounced mechanisms that result in brain cell death or deactivation in the presence of emotional stress. The homeostatic, regulatory factors of the brain can sense prolonged adrenergic stress and will downregulate (desensitize) certain neural pathways in order to minimize the stress signal. It also "rewires" certain neural pathways to adapt to stressful environments. Large-scale changes based on high-stress are often found in neurotic (anxiety) disorders and in PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).
no but too much salt can because if you have too much salt in your cells than water the cell will burst
No, but it can lead to your brain cells weakening.
no, well not enough to make the slight difference to anything ever.
Not immediately. Helium has many negative effects on the brain. Bubbles of helium can travel to the arteries that lead to your brain. Inhaling the gas won't kill brain cells o…n its own, but sucking it in can cause oxygen deprivation, which can lead to your precious brain cells slowly dying.
No. Brain freeze is a headache most commonly associated with the quick consumption of cold substances, such as ice cream. When the cold substance comes into contact with you…r palate or the roof of your mouth and sinus cavities it causes the blood vessels to vasoconstrict or get smaller. As the palate warms the blood vessels dilate. This rapid constriction and dilation is detected by pain receptors that travel to the brain via the trigaminal nerve, which also serves as one of the major nerves for the facial area. Because the pain signal travels with the signals coming from the face, the brain thinks it is feeling pain in the face that isn't really there, this is called referred pain. The only way the brain is effected is how it perceives the information received from the nerve. http://wiki.answers.com/What_does_a_brain_freeze_do_to_the_brain#ixzz17kJwkNDd
Certainly. Also slowly but surely takes away the ability to feel pleasure, physical or emotional. Happy Tweaking! - Audrey
Yes, but on a minor scale. It's not enough to do serious damage. Unless smoked regularly. sweetheart i smoke everyday at least twice and i can still count to ten WITHOUT usi…ng my fingers! u don't kill brain cells no matter how much u smoke...trust me!
Drug abuse, lack of oxygen, strokes, and certain medical conditions such as those which cause seizures are some things which kill brain cells.
