History of the hookah

Traditionally and nowadays hookah smoking has been and is a very social custom, often practised in cafés, restaurants or at home with familiy, friends and guests. In many countries and cultures it is deeply rooted and part of daily life. Not only in the Middle East and Nort Africa, but also in the rest of the world the sale of waterpipe products has increased enormously in the recent years. Althought the World Health Organisation has been warning about the smoking of shishas for quite some time now

One of the most widely spread myths about shisha smoking is that it is a healthier way of smoking compared to cigarettes and cigars. For example there are more hazardous components (in numbers and amounts) present in shisha smoke than in cigarette/cigar smoke. Such as carbon monoxide, tar and amounts of heavy metals like lead and chromium. The relation of health and regular shisha use and all state the same thing: 'regular shisha use leads to worse health, higher risk of various cancers and other diseases, like periodontal disease'. Thus, although shisha smoking is a very social and tasty custom, it also poses a serious threat to health.
