The Third Cause..

Cocaine users can have abnormal blood flow in the heart that is hard to detect, which can put them at increased risk for heart disease or death, a new study warns. Those using cocaine showed subtle abnormalities in blood flow through the heart's smallest blood vessels, which were considered significant when compared to non-cocaine users with diabetes, high blood pressure and a family history of heart disease .

However, these abnormalities may not be detected on a standard heart imaging test if a cocaine user complains of chest pain or shortness of breath, the researchers noted, which puts users at risk for heart complications or death.
