Vaping and heart health have become increasingly linked in recent studies. Research shows that vaping can raise the risk of cardiovascular problems, leading to heightened concerns about its safety. Vaping has been found to increase blood pressure, cause inflammation, restrict blood vessels, and raise “bad” cholesterol levels, all of which increase the risk of heart attack or stroke. Additionally, the presence of nicotine in many e-cigarette liquids further contributes to the danger as nicotine has been linked to increased heart rate and increased blood pressure. While further research needs to be conducted to truly understand the overall impacts vaping has on heart health, current evidence suggests that it is not a safe alternative to smoking.
