3 Reasons Why Smoking the Hookah is Harmful – Health Essentials from Cleveland Clinic
Hookah smoking is often mistaken as a healthier alternative to cigarette smoking, primarily due to the sweet smell and taste of hookah tobacco, and the social aspect that usually leads to hookah smoking being only an occasional habit. But there's no such thing as a healthy smoking option, and hookah smoking can be just as—if not more—dangerous as cigarette smoking. Other names for hookah are narghile, argileh, shisha, hubble-bubble, and Goza. Hookah tobacco is often sweetened with molasses, fruit pulp, or honey, with additional flavors such as coconut, mint, or coffee. Hookah pipes have been in use for about years, originating in India and Asia.
