Nicotine may accelerate atherosclerosis, may be as dangerous as tar

... Surgery at Weill Cornell Medical College. Previous studies have suggested that nicotine in cigarettes can hurt the heart by activating the sympathetic nervous system and increasing the heart rate -- potentially leading to fatal arrhythmias. (Nicotine also affects most organ systems -- including the ...
