VAPING is Terrible For Your Heart
Research on how vaping affects blood vessels and heart health is reported in two recent related studies that were published in the peer-reviewed journal Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology of the American Heart Association.
Both studies, one on humans and the other on rats, concluded that inhaling foreign substances appeared to have negative effects rather than particular elements of e-cigarette vapor or cigarette smoke.
In a statement released by the AHA, Dr. Matthew L. Springer, a professor of cardiology at the University of San Francisco and the study’s lead author, said that thousands of chemicals had been identified in tobacco smoke, some of which are also present in e-cigarette aerosols, either as an original ingredient or as a chemical reaction product of the heating process. We looked for a specific element in smoke or e-cigarette vapor that may be affecting blood vessels’ capacity to operate correctly.
The study, which looked at 120 adult humans, confirmed the first by discovering that smoking and vaping both seem to cause changes that are connected to heart disease.
