E-Cigarette's May Double Your Risk for a Heart Attack

Dr. Morris explains that while e-cigarette's may be a great transition into smoking cessation, when used solely for recreational purposes or when combining with the use of traditional cigarettes their health risks are very high.

"...While people may think they are reducing their health risks, we found that the heart attack risk of e-cigarettes adds to the risk of smoking cigarettes," Glantz said. "Using both products at the same time is worse than using either one separately. Someone who continues to smoke daily while using e-cigarettes daily increases the odds of a heart attack by a factor of five..."
