Re: My own little experiment
Well for what it's worth I did as I said I would and blew the smoke from nearly an entire 45 minute session through a paper towel. I attached it to a paper towel roll cut down to be shorter than a t.p. roll and taped all around it so the smoke had nowhere to go but through the paper towel. At the end of the session there was no discoloration at all to the paper towel. Does this mean that smoking a hookah is safe? No. Does it mean that there's no tar at all in hookah smoke? No. Does it mean that smoking a hookah is better for you than smoking cigarettes? Not necessarily, but I feel a little better about it seeing that cigarette smoke leaves a very noticable stain from one drag let alone a whole smoke. I'm no scientist, I did this out of curiousity.
