Hookah, the flavored water pipe for smoking tobacco can be really tempting, as hookah bars are growing in popularity and thereby in number across different cities. Search up a local hookah bar in your neighborhood and you’re bound to find at least one. Like the traditional cigarette, hookahs can seem socially appealing and have a palatable taste. Also like the traditional cigarette, unfortunately, the traditional hookah poses serious risks to your health.
Hookah is More Dangerous than Cigarrettes
The dangers of smoking hookah were addressed by policy makers, health professionals and advocacy workers on March 17, 2015 at the 16th World Conference on Tobacco or Health in Abu Dhabi. One such danger that was highlighted was the fact that smoking hookah for an hour is the equivalent of smoking a heaping 100 cigarettes. An hour may seem excessive, but most hookah smoking sessions usually last between 30 minutes to an hour and a half.
Health Problems and Misconceptions
A generally held misconception about the hookah is that it is a healthier alternative to smoking cigarettes. This is not so. Although the smoke passes though water before it is inhaled, there is a large amount of cancer-causing chemicals, tar and nicotine. The concentration of this matter cannot be filtered out through the pipe, despite its water content.
Besides the risk of cancer and heart disease, smoking hookah is proven to have other dismaying effects like dizziness, nausea and headaches. This should not come as a surprise due to the coal inside the hookah. You are essentially inhaling burnt coal, along other unhealthy particles.
