Abstract


Smoking causes many issues and difficulties with the Cardiovascular System, particularly smoking interrupts normal functions of the blood pressure, blood, arteries, and the heart. This leaves many diseases and health issues available to be had when someone smokes. However, smoking is not the only thing that could cause these issues, smokeless tobacco's such as chew or dip may cause these problems as well. There are many studies and tests done that indicate blood pressure rises due to smoking, however, it does not take time to rise. According to the American Lung Association, the first puff of a cigarette will increase your blood pressure instantaneously.
