Angry A Small Thing I've Been Noticing...

I just wanted to bring to everyone's attention the following myth:

Using regular foil on your bowl is not good. It could give you Parkinson's or Alzheimer's.


THIS IS 100% FALSE.


There are a lot of stupid shop owners lately that have been telling their customers this lame excuse to buy their specialized hookah foil. People have been using HD foil on their bowls for years and no one has ever reported getting Parkinson's or Alzheimer's. I hope that this myth will be eventually debunked somehow and these idiotic shop owners will stop filling their customer's heads with complete crap.

Yeah, my local shop owner tried to feed me this line. I argued with him for 30 minutes and he finally threw me out of the store. This idiot thinks Chinese hookahs are premium, Fantasia is the best tobacco ever and sells his AF Solid Large for 275 bones. This guy deserves to be an idiot.

It would cause it if you heated your foil to over 5,000 degrees F. however coals dont even come close to this temp, you can look up the vaporization temp of aluminum, tin, and other metals used for foil and screens, you will find the temps are far higher than coals burn at. More or less unless your using an oxy-acetaline torch to heat your shisha you will be fine, i wish fursaken was around to confirm this.

It's because foil consumption has been linked to triggering genetic diseases like Alzheimer and Parkinson if I remember correctly.Your argument about saying that no one has reported getting it from smoking Hookah is incorrect though. You wouldn't be able to prove it, even if it did, because it will lie dormant for years and appear as you get older, also the argument isn't that it causes it, it's that it triggers it, or triggers it earlier. Now the actual proof would be in places like the Middle East, and see if there was an increased amount of Parkinson or Alzheimer, but either way, since it's genetic one could say that those people simply don't have it in them. But, you're not taking in any foil when you're smoking, so it's a moot point.

I got Alzheimer's from smoking with foil but it could be worse. I could have Alzheimer's.

Wouldn't be surprised if it was main street tobacco and gifts at 43rd. They've told me that before. At first that's why I bought them, I buy 'em now cause I'm lazy and just like picking up a sheet or two of foil rather than walking to my kitchen. At $2-$3 for 100 sheets I could care less.
