    What’s the Link Between Smoking and Heart Disease?

    About 30% of deaths from heart disease in the U.S. are directly related to cigarette smoking. Smoking is a major cause of atherosclerosis.

    Among other things, the nicotine in smoke causes:

    Less oxygen to the heart
    Higher blood pressure and heart rate
    More blood clotting
    Damage to cells that line coronary arteries and other blood vessels.
