Alcohol and Second-Hand Smoking Combination is a Hell for Your Heart

Nov 27, 2007

Drinking alcoholic drinks while inhaling second-hand smoke becomes even more damaging for your heart increasing your risk of heart problems nearly five times.

The research conducted by scientists from the University of Alabama, Birmingham showed that second-hand smoking becomes even more dangerous when combined with alcohol consumption.

During the experiment, mice were placed in a lab filled with smoke while being given liquid diet with ethanol(contained in alcohol). As a result the mice exposed to dangerous combo had five times more of a cases of artery lesions in comparison to mice who were breathing fresh air.

The experiment on mice was conducted over a five-week period and the findings can be compared to the same effect as a 150-pound adult having about two drink per hour and being near a smoker with the doors closed.

Experts claim that alcohol and second-hand smoking combination is more aggravating than smoking or alcohol drinking alone.

Researchers also learned about other signs of cardiovascular diseases such as DNA damage and oxidative stress in heart tissues and these results can become very important for smokers and non-smokers.

Scientists say that in spite of the fact that moderate alcohol consumption may even benefit your health, its combination with smoky air will have only harmful effect.

The research is published in the journal Free Radical Biology and Medicine.
