  • 1. Smoking Hookah
    By: Shruti Hans
  • 2. What is Hookah?
    Water pipe
    Originated in India
    Traced back to Middle East – Shisha
    Parts of a hookah:
  • 3. How Hookah Works
    Inhaling through the pipe/hose increases pressure in jar.
    Air moves into the bowl above which the charcoal and tobacco are placed.
    Lit charcoal heats the air.
    Air evaporates the tobacco  smoke
    Smoke goes through the water jar
    Heat is lost as it makes its way to the top of the jar to which the hose is attached
    Smoker takes in this smoke and then releases it as with a cigarette.
  • 4. Hookah’s Appeal
    Wide variety of flavors + smells
    Social activity
    Hookah bars/lounges
    Portable hookahs
  • 5. Hookah is dangerous!
    Myth: Hookah is better than cigarettes because the water that the toxic smoke passes through cleans the smoke of it’s toxins.
    Many health risks
  • 6. Exposure to Toxins
    Water does not purify smoke of all toxins
    Exposed to:
    Tar
    Carbon Monoxide
    Heavy metals
    Carcinogens
  • 7. Exposure to Smoke
    More than cigarette
    “A typical one-hour session of hookah smoking exposes the user to 100 to 200 times the volume of smoke inhaled from a single cigarette.” – WHO Advisory
    Second hand smoke

    Slightest movement can cause hookah to topple causing a fire
  • 11. At your next “Hookah party”…
    Think twice
    Hookah is just as dangerous as other forms of tobacco.
    Why fill your lungs with toxic chemicals and smoke?
    The fun is not worth the price you’ll have to pay later.
