Hallucinogenic mushrooms can help in the treatment of depression in patients with cancer

Experts from new York University, together with colleagues from the medical school of Johns Hopkins University have shown a positive effect of the ingestion of hallucinogenic mushrooms for patients with cancer. As it turned out, the hallucinations under control of the medical staff help people cope with depression.

Cancer patients who consented to the experiment, were divided into two groups. One was with psilocybin per 1 kg of body weight, the other is nicotinic acid. In the first group there were plenty of cases of improving psychological state of patients, which was not the case in the control group.

Now scientists plan to study the effect of hallucinogens on the psyche of the terminally ill people in a more dense mode. Note, in some countries, is not the first permitted use of medical marijuana for people with cancer.
