2 thoughts on “Danger to Gay Men Huffing Poppers

    This same article has been repackaged and reprinted all over the internet, and each one is as misleading as the next.

    Notice how the research study says – The current trend does not involve the conventional poppers (which have been around since well before the 1980’s, by the way).

    The problem is conventional poppers are outlawed, and to get around the law, companies use other sorts of ingredients with the same branding. These ingredients are what’s bad – not that gay men are finding “new ways to huff poppers”. People are buying the same brands they’ve always bought, but the makers are putting different stuff in the bottles (some bottles say 85% alcohol, for example, or isopropyl nitrite- which studies have shown to be bad on the eyes). Little harmful side effects have been shown from the original amyl or the follow up to amyl, isobutyl.

    Gay men are not the only people who do poppers, and this sort of article smacks of sex panic and drug panic, which is to be expected from someone who works at a swanky addictions facility.

      PopperRock, what is the name of the correct product to get and is there a Web Sitemail that sells it. I’ve heard of the term Poppers but didn’t know what it was until now ando would like to try it out. Does this enhance the secular experience?
