When you smoke hookah your more likely to get lung cancer than smoking cigarrettes. You shouldnt be doing either one.
Hookah smoking is not safer than cigarette smoking.
Also known as narghile, shisha and goza, a hookah is a water pipe with a smoke chamber, a bowl, a pipe and a hose. Specially made tobacco is heated, and the smoke passes through water and is then drawn through a rubber hose to a mouthpiece.
The tobacco is no less toxic in a hookah pipe, and the water in the hookah does not filter out the toxic ingredients in the tobacco smoke. Hookah smokers may actually inhale more tobacco smoke than cigarette smokers do because of the large volume of smoke they inhale in one smoking session, which can last as long as 60 minutes.
Hookah pens, flavored electronic cigarettes, and other electronic cigarettes are less harmful than cigarettes and can either help a person quit smoking or pick up smoking. There does need to have more research conducted to know the long term effects of electronic cigarette paraphernalia such as the hookah pen. I use them as a good tasting fun way to quit smoking and now i only use it around my smoking friends.
Hookah pens utilize a glycerin based additive that vaporizes when it reaches the specified temperature via its built in heating element. A majority of hookah pens are both nicotine and tobacco free. The primary difference between real hookah and a hookah pen is that the pen is vapor based, not smoke. There is no particulate matter that posses a health risk.
