Are e-cigarettes the next big heart health danger? The American Heart Association thinks so. These smokeless cigarettes have become mainstream and are putting smoking back into social situations it had previously been removed from. These devices are also being marketed heavily towards young people, potentially creating a new generation of smokers.
Watch this video to learn the truth about e-cigarettes. Although they are not the same as traditional cigarettes, they are not necessarily safe. Almost all e-cigarette products contain nicotine and can put your heart health at risk.
