Smoking Hookah is not safe. Besides delivering elevated levels of addictive nicotine with each inhalation (compared to cigarettes), other toxins and potential infections from the tubing can be inhaled. Sharing the Hookah can transmit potential infections such as tuberculosis, hepatitis, HIV, bacteria causing pneumonia and basic cold and flu viruses.
Intermountain Healthcare answeredSmoking tobacco with a hookah (water pipe) is more harmful than smoking cigarettes. Contrary to what many people believe, the hookah doesn't filter out harmful substances. What's more, hookah users often inhale far more smoke than cigarette smokers do. For better health, get un-hooked from the hookah.
