Experts say that hypertension (increased blood pressure in the arteries) is caused by cigarette smoke. For this reason, scientists recommend avoiding smoking and hypertension is especially dangerous for passive smoking.
“Try to avoid the effects of passive smoking, regardless of whether the smoker is in the room or not,” said Byung Jin Kim, the author of the study.
According to research results, passive smoking increases the risk of developing hypertension by 13-17%.
“The results show that, in order to protect against hypertension, not only should we avoid passive smoking, but also avoid total smoking,” said Kim.
High blood pressure is one of the main causes of early death. In 2015 alone, according to Medical Xpress, more than 10 million people died.
