Health Tip: When Athletes Smoke
Tobacco can interfere with performance

(HealthDay News) -- Among the many reasons for kids to stay away from tobacco: it can significantly affect performance if you're an athlete.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention explains how:

  • Tobacco can cause extra strain on your heart from narrowed blood vessels caused by nicotine.
  • Tobacco can damage lungs, decreasing oxygen that muscles need to function well.
  • Tobacco can increase shortness of breath.
  • Tobacco can slow running speed and hinder your ability to run longer distances.
