This makes your heart beat faster and your blood pressure go up. Clots can also form.1,2 A heart attack occurs when a clot blocks the blood flow to your heart. When this happens, your heart cannot get enough oxygen. This damages the heart muscle, and part of the heart muscle can die.1,2 A stroke occurs when a clot blocks the blood flow to part of your brain or when a blood vessel in or around your brain bursts.1,2 Blockages caused by smoking can also reduce blood flow to your legs and skin.1,2 If nobody smoked, one of every three cancer deaths in the United States would not happen.1,2 Smoking increases the risk of dying from cancer and other diseases in cancer patients and survivors.1 Smoking and Other Health Risks Smoking harms nearly every organ of the body and affects a person’s overall health.1,2 Smoking can make it harder for a woman to become pregnant and can affect her baby's health before and after birth.
