Obviously, blood pressure control is key in preventing heart disease. All the usual suspects should be mentioned in controlling blood pressure–exercise, weight control, diet, smoking, and alcohol. While smoking is not a cause of hypertension, it is a contributing factor. Smoking does not cause heart disease, but it does it lead to pathogenic changes that lead to heart disease. We know there is a definite link between smoking and heart disease, thus the combination of smoking and high blood pressure increases the risk of developing a heart attack.
