Study Shows Shisha Smoking is More Dangerous
Stricter smoking bans are being carried in Malaysia and United Arab Emirates which includes shisha smoking. The reason for including the flavored tobacco water pipe is because a study has found that one inhales more tobacco with it than smoking a cigarette.
This research was spearheaded by Universiti Malaya Associate Professor Dr Nabilla Abdul Mohsein Al-Sadat. He says, “Some people tend to think that anything adopted from the Arab world is good. People think smoking shisha is harmless but, in fact, it is worse than cigarettes.”
Aside from the tobacco, he states that sharing water pipes can also spreads contagious diseases.
