In Turkey, at Cornell University Medical College, the chairman of the cardiology division, Dr. Kaghan Golan, has issued a warning that smoking cigarettes right after breaking the fast during Ramadan can raise the risk of heart disease.
Dr. Golan claims that smoking after a prolonged break damages the body’s immune system and results in physical tremors, disorientation, and tremors in the hands and feet. More than the damage caused the rest of the year, smoking during Ramadan can also seriously harm the blood vessel walls, increasing the risk of heart-related illnesses.
According to medical studies, there is a surge in heart-related deaths during Ramadan. Dr. Golan also cautions that smoking can result in a quick demise. He exhorts people to use Ramadan as an opportunity to kick their smoking habit and take advantage of their body’s natural propensity to abstain from tobacco use over the lengthy hours of fasting.
Dr. Golan cautions that smoking can undermine the spiritual introspection, self-improvement, and increased dedication that characterise Ramadan. Thus it’s imperative to stop smoking during Ramadan in order to encourage a healthy lifestyle and reduce the risk of heart disease.
