Contrary to some opinions, e - cigarettes can pose a serious health risk to users. Acording to a new study published by a University of California San Frisco (USCF) research team, use of e-cigarettes every day can nearly double the odds of a heart attack. The study which surveyed nearly 70,000 people and was published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, found that dual use of e-cigarettes and conventional cigarette users- appears to be more dangerous than using either product alone. Daily use of e-cigarettes and tobacco cigarettes raises the heart-attack risk fivefold when compared to people who dont use either product. E- cigarettes deliver lower levels of carcinogens than tobacco cigarettes, but like the latter they have "ultrafine particles" and other toxins linked to increased cardiovascular and non-cancer lung disease risks. While people may think they are reducing their health risks, we found that the heart attack risk of e-cigarettes adds to the risk of smoking cigarettes", said study author Stanton Glantz a USCF professor of medicine. The risk of heart attack starts to drop immediately after you stop smoking.... Our results suggest the same is true when they stop using e-cigarettes."
