Default To Foil or Not to Foil

I'm sure that other people have already asked this question but I could not find it anywhere. I use foil, but I've hear that it's very bad for you. What is everyones input on this? I mean I love my hookah but do I want to die for my hookah? Not really,,lol ok maybe..jk but anyways, does anyone really know how harmful it is for you?

Here we go again! LOL I say this everytime this question is posed, aren't you more concerned about inhaling smoke from anything for 45 minutes up to several hours?

Nah it is not harmful at all!

The only way for foil to be harmful is when it starts to melt and hookah coals aren't hot enough to make the foil melt.

Ack I know this question has been asked millions of times, I'm very sure of it :P

Who cares?! lol.
like jilly said, it shouldn't be harmful at this temperature.
now if you were you using a blowtorch to heat the tobacco, that's a different story.

Yep perfectly safe, the dull side is just a byproduct of production when they roll the foil out between rollers they can't get them close enough for 1 sheet of foil (it comes out too thick) so they roll 2 sheets at once so you get a shiny side where it touches the roller and a dull side where it touches the other sheet.

I got tired of using a new piece of foil every time, so I made a screen out of lead

only ones you should really watch for are non stick foils. just as a just in case kinda thing. there could be chemicals that could mess with you. just stick with standard foils and youll be good

That's very interesting wolfstar! Now I finally know why there's a shiny side, and a not shiny side! Thanks for sharing
