Smoking and Your Heart Health
Some people assume that smoking is detrimental only to their lungs. As this video from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention demonstrates, however, it can severely impact the heart as well.
Whether you have been a smoker for a few months or many years, tobacco use can cause irreversible damage to the cardiovascular system . For some, it may even lead to a heart attack. While people may survive heart disease, they often find that it permanently alters their ability to engage in many aspects of life, such as playing with their children. Don’t deprive yourself these simple life enjoyments; make a commitment to stop smoking today.
