Does Smoking Increase Heart Disease?


Hi, I’m Beth McLeod kicking off healthy heart
month with Dr. Abu-Romeh from Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital. And Dr., does smoking and tobacco
use really increase your risk of heart disease? Yes it does, Beth. Smoking increases the risk
of heart attack at least three times. Smoking increases cholesterol buildup and inflammation
in the arteries which exposes you to heart attack, and we see that even in secondhand
smokers. Thanks Dr. For more information, go to henryford.com/heart.
