Happy Woman’s Day (smoking and Contraceptives accelerating the Cardiovascular disease in Women )

Mortality from cardiovascular diseases is higher in women who smoke than in  men who smoke, even after adjustment  for other risk factors. It has been shown  that women metabolize nicotine faster  than men, especially when taking  oral contraceptives. Smoking and oral  contraceptives exert synergistic effects on the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
