It's a double-edged sword for meth addicts. On the one hand -- new teeth! On the other hand -- a clearer memory of the things they have done.
The headline makes the clinical trial results sound kind of terrifying until you read the article. Like maybe subjects were just popping out new teeth or something.
That would be awful. What is worse than teeth where there are not supposed to be teeth? I think I read something once about someone who had fingernails growing over his entire body. I pray to God that was actually some dream. My mother claims to have a tooth in her nose. I have no idea what the hell that could even mean.
I do love the accidental side effects that give drugs a whole new life or direction. Take Viagra, for example. No, really -- take it.
