A recent study published in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health found that nicotine salts can actually cause cancer and premature death in some people.
In the study, researchers found that people who had a high concentration of nicotine salts in their saliva were three times more likely to have a heart attack than those who had low levels of the drug.
Scientists believe that nicotine’s effect on the heart is due to it’s effect in the body’s blood vessels, and that nicotine increases the likelihood of the heart developing a valve in the arteries that allow oxygen and blood to flow to it.
Nicotine salts also can be harmful to the lungs, causing shortness of breath and asthma.
People who have a high amount of nicotine in their system can have difficulty breathing and feel sick, and people who have high levels of nicotine can have a hard time getting rid of the substance, experts say.
One of the biggest risks is that those who have been diagnosed with heart disease, stroke, or other heart conditions may be at increased risk of lung cancer.
