The health effects of smoking Shisha and hookah – Read
Lifestyle trends and styles tend to change every other year. While a few of them, such as going to a local pub for a pint or two, become an integral part of the local culture, plenty of others are quickly forgotten. Shisha smoking has been here for quite a long time though. It’s quickly becoming a first-choice leisure activity for more and more people.
Some people gather for shisha smoking sessions at certain cafes and bars, and some do it at home in a familiar environment, but a rare hookah smoker ever wonders about the true effects of the habit on their health. It’s strange really: everyone knows about the extremely harmful nature of cigarettes, but smoking shisha is somehow widely considered to be a completely safe, risk-free practice.
However, it couldn’t be further from the truth. Hookah smoking can be as damaging, addictive, and dangerous as cigarettes, because the tobacco is no less toxic in a water-pipe. In fact, a habitual shisha smoker might breathe in much more poisonous fumes during an hour-long session than a typical cigarette smoker inhales in a few days. Obviously, this can cause a wide array of long-term health risks, including cancer and heart, skin, and gum diseases.
