Smoking cigarettes can cause lung damage, but a new study shows how Vaping can harm the heart

None

The American College of Cardiology has some bad news for e-cigarette users after a new study found that those who vape are 19% more likely to develop heart failure compared to their non-vaping counterparts.
Researchers used data from a National Institutes of Health (NIH) study, including surveys and electronic health records, to assess potential correlations between heart failure diagnoses and e-cigarette use in over 175,000 patients.
The results found that over 3,200 participants developed heart failure within a median follow-up time of 45 months, according to the report.
SMOKING SHRINKS THE BRAIN AND DRIVES UP ALZHEIMER’S RISK, NEW STUDY FINDS “On one hand, it [vaping] is a little bit better [than traditional cigarettes].
You’re creating chemicals that are now going into your lung,” Dr. Saphier explained.
Maybe it’s a good stepping stone to get off traditional cigarettes, but for long-term, absolutely not.
Over the years, though, advertisements for traditional cigarettes have dwindled as experts have increasingly sounded the alarm over their potential side effects.
Dr. Saphier says the advertising industry should follow suit on e-cigarettes.

NEUTRAL

Users of electronic cigarettes have some bad news from the American College of Cardiology: a recent study revealed that vapers had a 19% higher risk of developing heart failure than non-vapers.

Researchers examined possible associations between heart failure diagnoses and e-cigarette use in over 175,000 patients using data from a National Institutes of Health (NIH) study, including surveys and electronic health records.

According to the report, more than 3,200 participants experienced heart failure during a median follow-up period of 45 months.

Now, let’s be sincere. In her Sunday speech to “Fox and Friends Weekend,” Dr. Nicole Saphier remarked, “It’s great news because sometimes we need to point to these studies to really hone this in.”.

NEW STUDY FIND THAT SMOKING SHRINKERS THE BRAIN AND IMPROVES THE RISK OF ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE.

Vaping is marginally preferable to traditional cigarettes, on the one hand. But first, let’s consider what vaping actually is. The nicotine is still present. It is well known that nicotine directly affects our blood vessels. Your heart experiences increased strain when the elasticity of your blood vessels declines. Therefore, it is not surprising that continued nicotine use will have an adverse effect on your heart. Furthermore, you’re inhaling novel substances when vaping. According to Dr. Saphier, “You’re producing chemicals that are now entering your lung.”.

Dr. Saphier stated that although e-cigarettes were once believed to be a healthier option than traditional cigarettes, they are also connected to a condition known as “popcorn lung,” which is caused by damage to the lungs’ air sacs.

“I most definitely do not advise it for everyone. Perhaps it’s a good way to start cutting back on traditional cigarettes, but definitely not in the long run. It’s harmful,” she went on.

FIT: QUIT SMOKING (OR HELP SOMEONE ELSE QUIT THE PATTERN).

In recent years, vaping marketing campaigns have targeted younger audiences by promoting flavors like marshmallow, cotton candy, and bubble gum to lure in potential customers, a tactic that has been used for decades in advertising.

But as experts have raised more and more concerns about the possible negative effects of traditional cigarettes, there have been fewer and fewer advertisements for them over time.
