Re: Seeking Clarification...
Most of the pure white smoke comes from the Glycerin, not the tobacco, in terms of Americanized shisha (like starbuzz). Tar is produced from burning tobacco. Someone on the forums did a little test and found no tar after smoking 2 bowls of Al Fakher shisha. It's really impossible to know if "Tobacco" causes cancer; but Cigarettes, do. Shisha is NOT cigarettes. The worst part of hookah smoking is the coals, by far.
