Study:  E-Cigs Can Increase Your Risk of Cardiac Arrest

Vaping could be as dangerous for your heart as smoking regular cigarettes, a University of Louisville study indicates.

The chemicals found, specifically, in menthol-flavored devices can cause heart arrhythmias in mice.  Arrhythmias can cause the heart to beat irregularly; and, if left untreated, can lead to cardiac arrest.

E-cigarettes can trigger this condition because a person’s heart slows during the puff, and speeds up after.

The use of e-cigarettes could interfere with normal heart rhythms – something we did not know before,” Aruni Bhatnagar said.
