Re: New Dangers of hookah or bull crap?
Plus the heat from the smoke of cigarettes can irritate your throat and lungs causing you bronchial tubes to swell, thus making it easier for tar to build up in it, also reduces air capacity. Over time, these bronchial tubes will start to stay swelled, this is when you start hacking up black stuff in your spit. With hookah, the cool smoke is not able to irritate the lungs to that extent, unless you have like 5 coals and no water. This is why i generally put some ice in the base, regardless of flavor.
