The development of technology has made it easier for smokers to avoid the negative health effects brought about by the smoking of normal cigarettes or hookahs. There are many dangers associated with smoking hookahs. The good thing is that there are also many alternatives available on the market that will offer you the satisfaction you want. Here are some of the dangers associated with smoking hookahs.


Just like the normal cigarettes, hookah smoking is very addictive because of the presence of nicotine. This makes them just as toxic as smoking tobacco. Despite that, many hookah smokers consider the practice less harmful than smoking; this habit has similar health risks to normal cigarettes. Hookah smoke has similar harmful toxins to cigarette smoke. This means that if you smoke hookah, you are in high risk of developing diseases such as respiratory illness, lung cancer, periodontal disease or low birth weight if used during pregnancy. According to the World Health Organization, hookah smoking expose smokers to high amount of smoke for a longer period of time compared to smoking of normal cigarettes. A one hour session using a hookah pipe can be has harmful as smoking 100 cigarettes.

Another risk involved in smoking hookah is increased risk of cancer. The charcoal that is used to heat tobacco increases the risk because of the production of smoke that contains high amounts of metals, carbon monoxide and other chemicals that cause cancer. In addition, smoking hookers poses a greater risk to those who are exposed to second-hand smoke.

To prevent the above health risks posed by smoking hookahs, you can use mechanical mods with nicotine eliquids ( additionally with e-liquid flavour concentrates ) as a healthier alternative. The good thing is that they produce water vapour instead of smoke, and you can choose to use them with or without nicotine so they are perfect if you are looking to reduce your nicotine intake. They also do not pose the same health risks to non-smokers as there is no known passive smoking risk.
