JAMMU: Marching ahead to make people aware about the ill effects of cardiovascular diseases, Dr Sushil Sharma held a day long camp at Shree Ramleela Club Samajik, Sanskritik Sanstha, Ram Mandir, Sainik Colony area of Jammu City. More than 150 people were screened, evaluated, diagnosed and free medicines were given as per the requirements. While interacting with the people, Dr Sushil stated that smoking is a major cause of concern for cardiovascular disease. If you smoke, your risk of heart attack is increased by two to six times, Stroke is increased by three times, peripheral arterial disease, which can lead to gangrene, is increased by more than five times, he said adding that cigarette smoking increases the risk of coronary heart disease by itself. When it acts with other factors, he said, it greatly increases risk. He added that smoking increases blood pressure, decreases exercise tolerance and increases the tendency for blood to clot. Cigarette smoke contains thousands of chemicals including: nicotine – an addictive drug that affects brain and muscle activity and increases blood pressure, making heart to work harder. Carbon monoxide – a poisonous gas that replaces oxygen in blood, making heart beat faster. Tar – a sticky substance that coats your lungs like soot in a chimney, making it harder to breathe, and also contains dozens of chemicals that cause cancer, he added. He stressed that exposure to second-hand smoke (passive smoking) is a serious health hazard for smokers and non-smokers.
