Hilgendorf's Healthful Hints

For years, the agency has warned about the long-term risks of secondhand smoke, but this is the first time it has warned about the dangers of short exposures of even 30 minutes. Smoke increases the risk of a heart attack by rapidly increasing the tendency of blood to clot, which can restrict flow to the heart, and by causing other adverse effects in the arteries.
