E-cigarettes Increase the Risk of Heart Failure

A recent study has found that electronic cigarettes significantly increase the risk of heart failure.

The researchers said that e-cigarette users were 19% more likely to suffer from heart failure compared to those who had never used e-cigarettes at all.

More than 175,000 adults in the United States, both smokers and non-smokers, were studied over a period of 4 years in one of the largest studies to date comparing the effects of e-cigarettes on the heart.

Overall, 3,242 participants experienced heart failure during the study period, but those who used e-cigarettes were more prone to this condition by one-fifth compared to those who had never touched an e-cigarette.

Heart failure is a condition in which the heart loses its ability to pump blood properly, resulting in inadequate supply of blood and oxygen to the body’s organs, leading to persistent feelings of fatigue and tiredness.
