Study Proves Snorting Coke and Watching Porn is Bad

In multiple research studies it has been concluded that both cocaine and pornography can likely lead to reduced decision-making abilities.

This, according to medical researchers, is groundbreaking evidence about the perils of cocaine usage and pornography viewing.

A medical research director at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine went on the record to state that watching too much pornography will lead to sub-optimal results while gambling.

Dr. David Greenfield told multiple media outlets including Vice and The Christian Post that when a human’s prefrontal is disengaged, which is what happens during cocaine consumption and pornography watching, decision making skills are severely hampered.

Another study, published by the School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, said that cocaine use will impair the brain from its ability to predict losses.

It then stands that medical science has proved that snorting coke and watching porn will not allow a poker player or gambler to make optimal decisions.

Seriously? There Were Studies to Prove This?

Dr. Greenfield, whose title is the Director at the Center for Internet Technology Addiction, said that pornography activates the limbic parts of the brain, which cuts off the brain’s prefrontal cortex, which is in charge of decision making, especially those involving moral choices.

He stated that if the prefrontal cortex is disengaged, people lack control over their judgment. Let it be now known then, if it wasn’t painfully obvious to the entire population of the Earth, that drugs and porn “distract” people from making optimal choices in life. That, according to this study, is now scientific fact.

In an equally painfully obvious study, researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai were able to conclude that cocaine use will impair the brain’s ability to predict losses.

The study researched 50 addicts and 25 control subjects who were allowed to play a gambling game while their brains were hooked up to monitoring equipment. Those in the study were primed with a positive outcome, who are normally risk averse, ended up going for a riskier option 56.8% of the time.

The results proved that addicts displayed an impaired ability to predict loss and perhaps just as interesting, found out that losing had little effect on decision-making.

A Big Win Motivates to Gamble More

In a third study done at the University of Warwick and the University of Alberta (Canada), some actual research resulting in information worthwhile was conducted.

As it turns out, those people who are reminded of a past gambling win are much more likely to gamble. The study concluded by stating that explicitly priming memories for recent positive outcomes for gambling will induce people who are normally risk averse to exhibit risk-seeking decision.

In layman’s terms, it scientifically proved that a person is likely to “let it ride” if they perceive themselves to be on a winning streak and the concept of “positive tilt” is a real condition of the brain.

Who Paid for these Studies, and Why?

What really remains to be answered is who pitched the idea of researching whether cocaine and pornography would lead to bad decision-making, and who felt those studies worthy of grant money.

Was there any outcome outside of what the results indicated even remotely possible? Not to the masses, certainly. It is interesting to read between the lines and notice that Dr.Greenfield spoke to a faith-based publication.

  7. magicius says:

    i agree with DonSifu 😀

  8. Michael Paler says:

    I have long suspected that frequent sex with prostitutes could lead to someone contracting an STD.

    So, where do I file for a million dollar grant to prove this? Anyone?

  9. Alkollol says:

    So are they trying to say we shouldn’t snort coke and watch porn, or are they saying it’s safe to expose people to this for their “studies”…Painfully obvious indeed.

  10. ScooperNova says:

    In other news, cigarettes and Big Macs are unhealthy.

  11. CallmeFloppy says:

    I find it pretty sad that with all the other diseases and issues that are plaguing the world,(cancer, AIDS tec.) that we allow money to be wasted on things we already know.

  12. boris_novacula says:

    Scientists fellows. In a study can take even cocaine. and all legal )

  13. NateVest says:

    With the one exception of Stu Ungar. That guy still killed it in the poker scene in the worst part of his addiction. RIP Stu

  14. skaterick says:

    I was surprised this wasn’t posted on april fools day ! but seriously now , as I understand it , none of these ‘studies ‘ actually involved coke or porn . they just extrapolated unscientifically .

  15. John says:

    I agree! With all the other problems and sickness in this world who is the Idiot who backed up this Study?

    On the other hand the guy that got the Grant to do this study was not only Genius but probably played Poker and was addicted to coke and or sex! So he was laughing.

    When I was younger I did Coke then had Sex a few times and it was Fantastic! and I never wanted to play Poker right after? And had I known I could get a Grant to do it and then play Poker to, I would have Studied probably until it killed me! And if my choice was to die a little younger doing that or live a little longer then die a horrible death with Cancer, I think I would have chosen the first? You?

    At anyrate, who the hell can snort coke, masterbate or have sex while playing Poker and win at the same time? At that crucial moment you would probably be hitting the all in button over and over again just as a reaction!

    🙂
