Snorting Heroin Leads to the Same Problems as Snorting CocaineHeroin Can Cause Severe Nasal Damage When Snorted

Cocaine has long been proven to cause severe damage to users' noses. But a new research study shows that heroin, when snorted, causes the same symptoms. In some subjects, snorting heroin lead to abscesses, ulcers, or even worse health effects. In some users, there was even tissue death that occurred in the nose and nasal passages.

What Else Does Heroin Do to Me?

Heroin is one of the most dangerous drugs available, with users quickly developing a tolerance and needing more and more of the drug in order to feel the same effect. Scientific studies have shown that humans are particularly susceptible to becoming addicted to heroin compared to other drugs. The tolerance keeps accelerating, until an addict gets in severe danger of overdose. And not only is heroin itself dangerous in terms of its addictiveness, but the street forms of the drug are often adulterated with poisons in order to increase drug-dealers' profits. Diluted or "cut" heroin can cause many more health problems than the pure drug. However, the most dangerous part of using heroin is often the needle: people who inject heroin have a great risk of contracting HIV, AIDS, hepatitis, bacterial or fungal infections, or other infectious diseases.
