Default Re: Hookah vs Cigies.

There are a lot of fake studies out there so be careful. I have read a couple good ones, actually Sambooka found a really good one, try to find it. The hookah is not 100% healthy for anyone, but one study that I read done in Afhganistan with a bunch of locals (with a variety of different smokers). The study concluded that smokeing the hookah an hour a day once a day actually showed the same carcenogenic levels in the blood as someone who breathes normal air. Someone that has 2-3, 3 hour sessions a day and smokes cigs, now his levels are about 10xs higher then the others. So like most things, moderation, and spacing between sessions. The water does help act as a filiter, but just take it easy and enjoy the session.
