Caption: Smoking and heart attack. Abstract image of a burning cigarette in a person's fingers with a man suffering the chest pain of a heart attack superimposed. The risk of coronary artery disease in a young man who smokes 20 cigarettes a day is about three times that of a nonsmoker, and this risk increases with the number of cigarettes smoked. Coronary artery disease leading to heart failure is the most common cause of death in middle-aged men in Western countries. Smoking may cause raised blood pressure, respiratory complications, and a hardening of the arteries, which are conditions all implicated in eventual heart failure.
