Could smoking marijuana really prevent cancer?  A recent study suggests that moderate marijuana use is associated with reduced risk of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), better known as head and neck cancers.  Numerous recent studies have shown that cannabinoids have anti tumor effects which most likely explains why marijuana smokers are less likely to get head and neck cancers.

Study conclusion:

Our study suggests that moderate marijuana use is associated with reduced risk of HNSCC.

We found that moderate marijuana use was significantly associated with reduced risk of HNSCC. This association was consistent across different measures of marijuana use (marijuana use status, duration, and frequency of use).  Further, we observed that marijuana use modified the interaction between alcohol and cigarette smoking, resulting in a decreased HNSCC risk among moderate smokers and light drinkers, and attenuated risk among the heaviest smokers and drinkers.

The alcohol use is staggering in this study, right? Close to 40% of participants drink more than 25 drinks of alcohol a week! You sleep almost two whole days through out the week if you get close to 7 hours of sleep a night. I think that might be part of our problem as a society being detached from sense of self and the widespread mental health problems. The average age of the study is close to 60 with a standard deviation of 11. These are not young binge drinkers.
