The Environmental Protection Agency reports that particular matter may interfere with your heart rate and fat metabolism. Worse, just five minutesÂ’ exposure to secondhand tobacco smoke measurably stiffens your aorta; after half an hour, it reduces your coronary arteriesÂ’ maximum capacity for blood flow and makes you platelets stickier. This means that less blood gets to your heart, putting you at greater risk for a heart attack. Do you smoke in a closed Automobile or home where little ones or friends present?
