Why Smokers Have Higher Risk of Heart Disease | Dr Tanmay Kumar Das | CARE Hospitals

What is the link between smoking and heart disease? Dr. Tanmay Kumar Das, Consultant Cardiologist at CARE Hospital, says that it might be related to inflammation in the coronary arteries induced by cigarette compounds. However, studies have revealed that if a smoker quits, the inflammatory markers in their blood actually fade, and their risk of heart disease is the same as a non-smoker within five years. Every year, World Heart Day is celebrated on the 29th of September. This day was first announced by the World Heart Federation to make people around the world aware of cardiovascular diseases and heart health. With the global campaign for World Health Day, we should aim to bring people together in the fight against cardiovascular diseases and encourage them to follow heart-healthy practices.
