hookah smoking just as or more dangerous than cigarettes

http://www.cdc.gov/tobacco/data_stat...ustry/hookahs/

Quote:
While many hookah smokers may consider this practice less harmful than smoking cigarettes, hookah smoking carries many of the same health risks as cigarettes.

Water pipe smoking delivers the addictive drug nicotine and is at least as toxic as cigarette smoke.
Due to the mode of smoking-including frequency of puffing, depth of inhalation, and length of the smoking session-hookah smokers may absorb higher concentrations of the toxins found in cigarette smoke.
A typical 1-hour-long hookah smoking session involves inhaling 100-200 times the volume of smoke inhaled from a single cigarette.
Hookah smokers are at risk for the same kinds of diseases as are caused by cigarette smoking, including oral cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer, cancer of the esophagus, reduced lung function, and decreased fertility.


i saw one of those shared pictures on a friend's facebook ... the caption said 1 hour of hookah smoking is the equivalent of smoking 200 cigarettes so i went and looked around the web to verify
i have an aversion to anything smoke-related ... and now i have a good reason to avoid hookah as well

The tobacco used isn't nearly as processed, is it? Does it have as many chemicals in it as cigarettes?

There's enough nicotine in 200 cigarettes to kill about 5 people. I call BS.

really simple test



what you see here is the amount of tar that was removed by the water from these 200 cigs, that doesnt include what residual is left in the smoke.

now go smoke a properly packed hookah bowl for one, two, hell three hours if you have some solid heat management and look at the water in your base. the only color change that ever happens is when wet tobacco drips down the stem and gets into the water.

come on people, you dont even "burn" the tobacco in a hookah, you heat it up to make the wetness steam off which is what you inhale. hell its not even smoke.

Nicotine by itself is not toxic to your lungs.
