Guard Your Heart: Ditch the Tobacco!

Tobacco seriously threatens heart health by causing harmful effects to the cardiovascular system, regardless of whether individuals smoke, chew, or vape. 

Here’s an overview of how smoking can impact heart health.

  • Constriction of Blood Vessels: Smoking leads to the narrowing of blood vessels, contributing to atherosclerosis and plaque buildup on artery walls.
  • Increased Strain on the Heart: The narrowed blood vessels force the heart to work harder to pump blood, putting additional stress on this vital organ.
  • Nicotine's Stimulant Effects: Nicotine, an addictive component of tobacco, acts as a stimulant, elevating both blood pressure and heart rate.
  • Perfect Storm for Complications: Increased heart workload and narrowed blood vessels increase susceptibility to cardiovascular complications.
  • Carbon Monoxide Interference: Carbon monoxide in cigarette smoke interferes with the blood's ability to carry oxygen, reducing the oxygen supply to the heart muscle.
  • Elevated Risk of Heart Attacks: Oxygen deprivation and cardiovascular strain significantly increase the risk of heart attacks.
  • Risk of Blood Clots: Long-term exposure to tobacco smoke amplifies the risk of blood clots, which can lead to heart attacks or strokes.
  • Arterial Inflammation: Smoking contributes to inflammation in the arteries, creating an environment conducive to blood clot formation and arterial blockages.

These serious factors underscore the critical importance of quitting smoking to preserve heart health and prevent potentially life-threatening cardiovascular conditions. These risks and health issues start reducing within hours of quitting and continue to improve year over year.
