e-cigarettes may not significantly reduce risk for heart disease

 

Nicotine, the major addictive substance in cigarette smoke, contributes to smokers’ higher risk of developing atherosclerosis, the primary cause of heart attacks, according to research presented at the American Society for Cell Biology Annual Meeting in New Orleans.
