That's not true... Lead is a very unstable material. Even having skin contact with it for extended periods of time can had adverse health effects.

but air passing over room temp lead, would be relatively safe, i still wouldnt use it. and for the most part an adult needs a much higher level to cause any effects, the reason it is so bad for children is because it harms development of the brain

the use isnt too bad (unless it stores alcohol which will dissolve the lead) but melting it is uber uber uber bad, thus manufacture is horrid

The omen looks great. I could see something horrible happening with one of my friends twirling the hose on they're finger though.

I am interested as to how you would propose smoking hookah at room temperature and not allowing water to touch it, which by the way can leach lead as well. the smoke does not start out cool. The stem of your hookah absorbs heat as the smoke passes through it. Feel the top of the stem right after you take the bowl off and notice how warm it is. At peak heat the stem can actually get pretty hot toward the top and especially at the tip.

Now this was started as a joke but I am not okay with anyone thinking it is ok to have lead in a hookah at all.

I know you guys dont want to answer any more questions, and I'll get my answer soon, but I'm just speculating that the DNA tip would look awesome if it had a tube around it, but also fantastic in a tighter twist sans the external tube.

Only reason I think of the outside tube is a bit of protection. thoughts?

Either way, I'm pumped!

i wouldnt put lead in a hookah or use one that had it but from my knowledge of lead i feel it is not as dangerous as it is felt by others. the heat wouldnt even get it to a melting point to let lead leach out (melt is 621 f and boil is 3000ish f). the water map pick up lead if it sits there for hours on end but the lead being heavy would probably sink in the water and i doubt the air could pick up the leached lead from the water and carry it all the way down the hose.

but this is kind of one of those, well if pigs could fly...

i do not condone the use of lead in a hookah, just saying that lead is not a extremely dangerous as it is some times thought of
