Bad Habits That Can Harm Your Heart
Smoking Tobacco Cigarettes
A study published in the journal Heart Rhythm has warned that smoking tobacco can cause adverse cardiovascular effects, including increased risk of developing arrhythmias.
Use Of E-cigarettes
E-cigarettes are not safe for heart either. They can cause similar harmful effects as tobacco cigarettes, said the study led by UCSF researchers.
The same study found that exposure to smoke from marijuana cigarettes worsen heart function and increased blood pressure in rats.
Excessive Alcohol Intake
Excessive consumption of alcohol has been linked to high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke as well as increased risk of type 2 diabetes.
Eating Fatty Foods
Fatty meals can impact your heart health. Especially, saturated fat, a type of dietary fat found in foods like butter, palm, cheese, and red meat, is associated with increased heart disease risk.
Insufficient sleep or poor sleep quality can also increase your blood pressure, cholesterol levels and thus the risk of heart disease.
