If you inhale mold spores is CAN and will be very unhealthy. That has nothing to do with hookah and more to do with responsibility though as anything with mold on it can do this. If people take care of their shit then it wont happen.

If you never flushed your toilet or did your dishes im sure youd get sick too. Moot.

I think it would take considerable effort or neglect to manage to build up mold in your hookah. Plus the vast majority of mold spores and shit are harmless, you breathe them in all the time, they're everywhere. The only people that get truely fucked up by mold seem to be patients on House.

Edit: Oh and yes, inhalation of mold can be very very lethal, and black mold could theoretically grow inside your base, as ive seen it grow in a bucket in a house we were demolishing. However if you smoke from a base with black mold in it, your either a moron, or blind.

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.

I totally agree. Ever since trying it for the first time, I've always added ice to the water. Taking a big drag off a hookah that's using warm water is SO incredibly gross.

Which is strange because i've seen doctors say quite the opposite, which just goes to show how much crap goes around.

honestly if you have ever had any medical "issue" that isnt run of the mill most docs are going to give you largely different opinions on it (even what it really is), doesnt surprise me that the docs cant come up with a consensus on sex and tobacco

ahem..this just in to the cnn health report. there is no way to prevent death. 10 out of 10 people die. the WHO proclaims this incident as a "level 6 epidemic" and in early 2010 every human in the united states will be required to be administered 6 shots per month.

you know, i would love to die from smoking hookah. hookah smoking is my favorite hobby and i would rather die at 60 doing the things i love instead of dying at 110 and have never drank alcohol, never gotten laid, never smoked hookah, never went out into public, never took chances, and never had fun.

i don't give two shits if it's equivalent to smoking 100 packs per session. i love to do it and i will gladly die at any time from doing it. i'm gonna go load up some nakhla DA and enjoy myself.

Well, who cares? You're smoking something anyway, so stop if you aren't sure you want to keep doing it.
