Too much testosterone kills brain cells: It’s Official

via CNN:

Health NewsWASHINGTON (Reuters) — Too much testosterone can kill brain cells, researchers say, in a finding that may help explain why steroid abuse can cause behavior changes such as aggressiveness and suicidal tendencies.

Tests on brain cells in lab dishes showed that while a little of the male hormone is good, too much of it causes cells to self-destruct in a process similar to that seen in brain illnesses such as Alzheimer’s.

This is one of those truisms of Trauma: Testosterone is a Neurotoxin.  Now it’s been proven.
