According to the article by Biosciencetechnology.com on 7/31, titled Meth Use Ups Fungal Infection Risk, researchers found that meth injections increased the speed the infected mice died. After nine days, 100 percent of meth treated mice were dead, compared to 50 percent of the control mice.

According to Meth Use Ups Fungal Infection Risk, researchers found that after injecting mice with meth, the test subjects' immune systems were weakened enough to allow the fungus to invade the central nervous system, where it causes a deadly brain infection.

The researchers also found that the meth injections increased the speed the infected mice died. After nine days, 100 percent of meth treated mice were dead, compared to 50 percent of the control mice.

In the United States, 13 million people have abused meth in their lifetimes. In 2010, there were 353,000 meth users.
