What is Shisha/hookah?

It is simply flavoured tobacco that is usually smoked through a water pipe. Like cigarettes and other tobacco products, it is the leading cause of cancer.

It is not true that smoking shisha is safer than smoking cigarettes. Here are some of the key things to note:

1) Shisha smoke contains carbon monoxide and heavy metals – it reduces your blood’s ability to carry oxygen and leads to clot formation which is a cause of heart attacks or stroke.Shisha smoking delivers nicotine—the same highly addictive drug found in other tobacco product.

2) Risk of mouth cancers are thought to be higher from shisha smoking than from other types of tobacco smoking due to the length and frequency of the smoking.
Shisha smokers share their mouthpiece and are exposed to the risk of contagious oral diseases like Hepatitis and Tuberculosis

3) Shisha smoking is one of the risk factors for prostate cancer. The idea that smoking tobacco through water will filter out cancer-causing chemicals is a myth and has no scientific basis. When you smoke Shisha, you can inhale same amount of smoke as from more than 100 cigarettes.

4) Compared to a single cigarette, shisha smoke is known to contain higher levels of arsenic, lead, and nickel, 36 times more tar, and 15 times more carbon monoxide than cigarettes. The amount of smoke inhaled during a typical hookah session is about 90,000 millilitres.
