E-cigarettes are more harmful to heart than tobacco!

A recent study conducted by the US Food and Drug Administration found that in the year of 2018, 27.5 percent of high school students used e-cigarettes as compared to 2019 it was increased by 20.8 percent. The latest study proves that e-cigarettes are more harmful to the heart than tobacco. Researchers have found that electronic nicotine delivery systems, such as e-cigarettes might be  harmful to the heart, than traditional cigarettes.”Our results suggest that e-cigarette use is associated with coronary vascular dysfunction at rest, even in the absence of physiologic stress, these findings indicate the opposite of what e-cigarette and vaping marketing is saying about their safety profile,” said researcher Susan Cheng, Director of Public Health Research at the Smidt Heart Institute.

While the study also estimates that in 2018, around 3.62 million middle and high school students were e-cigarette users. And the also studied the yogh adult group aging 18-38 who were regular users of e-cigarettes or tobacco cigarettes.

They analyzed both results, it was also found that in smokers who had inhaled the traditional cigarettes, blood flow increased modestly and then decreased with subsequent stress. However, in smokers who used e-cigarettes, blood flow decreased after both inhalations at rest and handgrip stress.

Meanwhile the researchers conclude that “We have known for decades that smoking increases your risk for heart attack and dying from heart disease, now, with this study, we have compelling evidence suggesting that newer methods of electronic nicotine delivery may be equally, or potentially more, harmful to your heart as traditional cigarettes,” said researcher Christine Albert.
