By MICHELLE PEARCE “I remember going to my doctor, and she said, ‘You know what?
Smoking is going to kill you.’
Pearson, a cardiologist at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, was one of a group of researchers who looked at the relationship between smoking and heart disease. “
That’s why I started to study heart disease,” said Melissa Pearson, who is a physician in North Carolina.
Pearson, a cardiologist at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, was one of a group of researchers who looked at the relationship between smoking and heart disease.
The group published a paper this year in the American Journal of Epidemiology, looking at how smoking rates and heart-related deaths are affected by age, race and gender.
“The idea that cigarettes are a big risk factor for heart disease is not based on research,” Pearson said.
“It’s based on speculation, on conjecture.
It’s a myth that cigarettes cause heart disease.”
While smoking is not a good thing for your health, it can also cause some problems in your heart.
There are other ways that tobacco use can contribute to heart disease besides smoking.
For example, there is evidence that cigarette smoking can increase your risk of heart disease by altering your blood clotting system.
Some people who smoke have lower levels of a clotting-insufficiency gene, which makes them more likely to develop heart disease if they are smokers.
But there is no evidence that smoking causes heart disease in people who have normal blood clotts.
That could be because people who are smoking have lower amounts of clotting in their arteries.
Other research has suggested that people who don’t smoke are more likely than those who do to develop certain forms of atherosclerosis.
Other factors that can increase the risk of developing heart disease include: having a family history of heart attacks or strokes, and having a blood type that is linked to blood clots.
The researchers also looked at whether people who smoked had more problems controlling their cholesterol levels.
People with a high blood pressure, high blood sugar, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, high LDL-cholesterol, high low density lipoprotein cholesterol or high levels of high-density lipoproteins (HDL-C) had more heart disease risk than people who did not smoke.
They also had more than double the risk for heart attacks than people with a low blood pressure and a low cholesterol level.
“I think the biggest problem with the literature is that there is really not a lot of evidence that cigarettes really have a significant impact on heart disease or cardiovascular risk,” Pearson told ABC News.
Pearson’s study focused on smoking and cardiovascular disease, which affects about 1.8 million people in the United States.
She said that although the results don’t show that smoking is a good risk factor, they do show that it could be harmful.
“We can’t deny that cigarette use is linked with heart disease and stroke, but there is not enough data to say that cigarettes can be a bad thing,” she said.
The study found that smoking increases the risk and severity of heart diseases in both men and women, but women were at a higher risk.
There was also a stronger association between smoking a pack a day and cardiovascular diseases in men than women.
Pearson and her colleagues said that the findings show that women who smoke are at higher risk for developing heart problems than women who don.
“This is a big problem,” Pearson added.
Women should be able to get their cholesterol checked, their blood pressure checked, blood sugars checked, and their cholesterol tested.” “
That means that they need to get more health care.
Women should be able to get their cholesterol checked, their blood pressure checked, blood sugars checked, and their cholesterol tested.”
The study also found that people with high blood-pressure levels or low LDL-C levels were at greater risk for cardiovascular disease.
People who had a family member who developed heart problems were more likely and also more likely at increased risk for other cardiovascular disease conditions, including cardiovascular disease-related death, liver disease and cancer.
It also found a relationship between the amount of smoking and the risk.
The higher the amount, the greater the risk, and the higher the level of smoking, the higher that risk was.
