Funny, I did the same thing last night, outside to my phone, and got nothing. Dust particles more than likely.

Best way to test this is to use some cheese cloth, double or triple layered and take an inhale a bit harder than you would normally.

It probably isn't the actual smoke. I have sucked hookah smoke through super fine filter paper and I couldn't detect any particulate matter on the filter paper with an analytic balance. Detection meaning a difference in the final mass after drying and initial mass that is larger than the .00001g that the balance is capable of measuring.

And I will have to dig up some old HS science fair data on particulate matter present in the air in smoking vs. non-smoking venues and the O2/CO2 concentrations in smoking vs. non-smoking environment. Obviously you can guess what trend I found. Maybe I will have to dig out the stuff I made for the first and get some sensors for the second and test my local hookah bar a few times and set it up and smoke with friends like I normally would.

If it was lung tissue it would accopanied by blood and you definately would notice just how horrible you feel.

My guess would be bits of coal particles or dust so wash your rig more often and better in the future. Also, I'd suggest not inhaling and smoke as if you are smoking a good cigar.

I'd say its most likely dust or ash from the hose. If they're washable wash them and if not make sure the bend them around a lot and then blow it out. Try to get as much out as possible.

If it were dust, it would probably be from the air in the room, so try exhaling straight into a cheesecloth, that should determine whether or not dust is the culprit. Ari, you are way out there

The screen is a very smooth surface. When you exhale on it, moisture and smoke residue land in a layer on it. Dust naturally sticks to the surface. All that is wrong is that your place is dusty.
