PostSubject: Hookah: Safe fun or harmful?   Thu Aug 09, 2007 6:58 pm

Recently due to the opening of various hookah (sheesha) bars across delhi the intake of hookah has increased a lot as all college going students and majorly the youth tend to go there and take hookah as a leisure or as a social timepass.

I had been recently interviewed by CNN-IBN Live for my opinion on hookah as friend had been interning with them and since i had a hookah at home and was a regular user of it too they asked me some questions and told me some facts which i found hard to believe.

Some of these were ...that hookah is worser than fagging as we intake 10 times more than that of a cigarette... this i didint believe as the tobacco in a hookah is just 0.4%.

The other fact they said was that the aluminium foil and the coal thats used..also releases carbon monoxide and also the aluminium vapors are indirectly inhaled by us..this leads to excessive AL in the body and eventually leading to the Alzheimer's disease..which is quite dangerous.
This i believed though because i researched upon it..but then its also said that there are various kinds of low %age AL foils available specially for hookah and the disease will only happen if one is a regular 2-3 times a day hookah smoker.

I'm just wondering where the hell r all the Sheesha lovers??
R they so busy in there things that they dont have time to register here?? or m i d only vela guy?? lolz
anyways...


damn true.. CO (carbon monoxide) is harmful for ur lungs..
causes Emphysema,decrease in ur tidal volume n lung capacity..
arterioles tend to lose their elasticity n hence oxygen intake is less....

hookah is more harmful than cigs.. dont go by the content..
nicotine is about 0.25-0.5% n it is tar free...
but the bong itself acts as a source of smoke trapped in the least amount of air causing formation of CO and to top it all we use coal and aluminium foil..

these things dont really matter.. do they?
addicts will do sheesha ... right??

but one should know the harmful effects..!

one example...
if u or ur frnds do smoke up MJ(marijuana/weed) or Hash, then u must have noticed that a person smoking up in a normal cig or rizzla or blunt doesnt get high so fast as compared to the person smoking up in a bong(whether glass,water or even pipes)... bong helps to create an area where air is very less..say marginal..

i hope u got my point...!

peace
