February is American Heart Month
Traditionally the month for lovers and all things heart related, February also reminds us to take care of our heart. It is American Heart Month.
Some risk factors for heart disease cannot be controlled, such as your age or family history. But you can take steps to lower your risk by changing the factors you can control.
When it comes to e-cigarettes, making a healthy decision can be more difficult.
It’s hard to escape the facts about smoking. The health risks associated with cigarettes are well documented, and the large, graphic warnings on every pack are obvious. But when it comes to e-cigarettes, making a healthy decision can be more difficult.
Some celebrate the arrival of these “smokeless” nicotine tools as a safe alternative to cigarettes, cigars and other tobacco products. The devices don’t emit the same cancer-causing tar and toxins that burning tobacco leaves produce.
But that’s not the whole story. Many e-cigarettes are loaded with addictive nicotine and even those without nicotine may contain toxic chemicals.
