With World Heart Day being tomorrow, it seemed quite fitting to share a new study highlighting another risk of e-cigarettes that was published in an article on MedlinePlus.

One of the causes of cardiovascular disease can include smoking or the use of other tobacco products. As it turns out, e-cigarettes can also increase the risk of cardiovascular disease–heart attacks, to be more specific. The new study shows that the nicotine in e-cigarettes can cause a spike in adrenaline, in turn increasing the risk of heart attack and sudden cardiac death.

As many of us have probably often heard, e-cigarettes are often promoted as the healthy alternative to cigarettes. When it comes to inhaling carcinogens, this may be true, but the smoking device still pose new risks.
