MONDAY, Jan. 25, 2016 (HealthDay News) Hookah bar employees are at risk for exposure to secondhand smoke, a new study warns. “Hookah [water pipe] use is often exempt from clean indoor-air laws that protect people from secondhand smoke,” study senior author Terry Gordon, a toxicologist and professor in the department of environmental medicine at NYU Langone Medical. If you never light up, the odds that you’ll get lung cancer go way down. But you could still get it if you hang out around people who do smoke.

Secondhand smoke is what you breathe in when people. Secondhand smoke what you breathe in when people around you smoke cigarettes, cigars, hookahs, or pipes contains 7,000 different chemicals. Of these, hundreds are toxic. About 70 can cause.

So, you should steer clear of secondhand smoke regardless. People Consume Tobacco in several forms like smoking cigarettes, smoking water pipes (shisha or hookah), smoking biri, smoking cigars. The perception of safety has enabled many hookah businesses to get around New York City legislation that bans smoking and the use of electronic cigarettes in virtually all workplaces. “Hookah use is often exempt from clean indoor air laws that protect people from secondhand smoke,” senior study author Dr. Terry Gordon said in a statement. One is that you can take your mask off to smoke and vape.

The second is that people can’t share cigarettes, vape pens, hookah instruments or any other smoking device used for vaporizing and. Well, experts say there is not enough reason to believe that secondhand smoke can directly spread the virus that causes Covid-19 but infected smokers may blow droplets carrying the virus when they exhale. The respiratory droplets people spray when they talk, cough or. Hookahs and Secondhand Smoke.

Secondhand smoke from hookahs can be a health risk for nonsmokers. It contains smoke from the tobacco as well as smoke from the heat source (e.g., charcoal) used in the hookah. 1,7,12; Nontobacco Hookah Products. Some sweetened and flavored nontobacco products are sold for use in hookahs.

13. Hookah smoke poses dangers associated with secondhand smoke. Hookah smoking by pregnant women can result in low birth weight babies.

Hookah pipes used in hookah bars and cafes may not be cleaned properly, risking the spread of infectious diseases. I think that on a gram per gram or mL per mL basis, hookah second hand smoke has less carcinogens. There is much more of it in general however which negates that tendency.

Some researcher proposed that there is no second hand smoke from a hookah, which is partially true, The charcoal does give off dangerous, poisonous and carcinogenic chemicals however.

List of related literature:

Secondhand smoke from hookahs poses a serious risk for nonsmokers, because it contains smoke from two sources, the tobacco smoke and smoke from the heat source (charcoal) used in the hookah.

A hookah works differently than an ordinary pipe; tobacco is indirectly heated with burning embers or charcoal and then the tobacco smoke filters through the water.

  • Im not a scientist. But in my opinion most of people of smoke hookah doesn’t smoke it daily it might take a week to go to a hookah section. And i can see that the majority of hookah smoker’s share hookah section with freinds.

    But on the other hand we can see that cigarette smokers can smoke were ever they are and all day long daily 24/7 and they doesn’t share it with freinds and they get most of smoke of the cigarettes into the lungs directly to feel relaxed.

  • I think after much analysis cigarettes are by far the most dangerous discovered, yet every air associated device in the 21st century is just completely harmful, as something of an anomaly. It could be how we design thingsand probably that the air is just bad anyway, and is compounded negatively more so by how we design products and combinations.
    Anomalous, but it’s a good point that things have become unhealthy and profit driven as well as…compulsory.

  • I realized that once I Quit it smoking and friends were smoking near me I felt that chest clogged and sad reality families smoking around children thinking it less harmful than cigarettes

  • They are cheating people, and they should be held accountable for it. They are playing with words, you smoke with hookah 100 time smoke as you smoke with cigarette. What does it even mean. As an engineer I can tell you that this is total bullshit, by changing many gas property, you can change its volume at will, you can divide that by 10 with no issues. The only important thing that should be specified in this kind of test, is the quantity of intoxicant absorbed, but you can clearly see that they are passing through that part like it is obvious, they just say, we know they contain nicotine and carcinogens etc… even clean air contains carcinogens at very low concentration. You can watch tons of videos on youtube comparing hookah and cigarettes smoke, you will see that the filters they use to collect the particles from smoke are always clear with hookah and filthy with cigarettes.

  • Ugh but i love it so much.even have a nice lil collection of them.its so relaxing after a long day at work.but this vid is a eye opener. Guess i gotta wing myself off of it.

  • thanks for this video. for some reason i thought it wouldnt be as bad, so i smoked hooka as an alternative to cigarettes, which has helped me get off of cigarettes but now i know its just as bad i’m gonna try to quit this as well. i started smoking at 14 at a party. dumbest decision i ever made concerning my own health.

  • I did it for the first time today and I’m having a panic attack, because I don’t want to die at the age of 14. And this has made me even more anxious. I DON’T WANT TO DIE MY FRIEND FORCED ME TO DO IT

  • My neighbors just started smoking hookah on their back porch…..I live in a row house and they are aa short distance from our back porch…..when I walked out of my back door I can smell a sweet tobacco smell…..is it dangerous to my health to be outside while this is going on……and I can even smell it in my upstairs back bedroom……is it dangerous to sleep with windows open……thank you…..Deborah

  • I have a problem I’ve been smoking this for almost a year now but now if I smoke my head bcmz heavy and it’s difficult for me to breath n I’m addicted to it☹️

  • I have been smoking shisha since 2015 and since then my weight is increasing, I do overeat and my eating habits are not healthy, but I have the notion of quitting shisha.

  • Blow out one puff of hookah smoke and one soda bottle!! I would say blow out 3 drags to fill there bottle up. So sorry doc I dissagare

  • I only do shisha maybe once a week or sometimes once a month and that’s just with my friends when we go out to town for the night. I don’t drink alcohol and my diet is pretty good so I think I’m all good

  • Smoking hookah is extremely dangerous than cigarette extremely dangerous for health and all the organs in the body that one little taste in your mouth will ruin the entire organs.people getting cancer because of hookah.

  • I’m 15 My friends smoke but I don’t It’s REALLY REALLY Bad for you. Do not try it. It’ll be so bad that you can’t handle going one day to the mall without getting out and smoke or going to the airport and feel like you’re one of the idiots who are not cool at all. So Please This Is A Warning Do Not Smoke

    Edit: The thing that’s heart breaking is that my Mom smokes and it Affects me (None Smoker) It HURTS When I Run. It’s impossible to run without coughing like crazy or to heavily breathe. I have now Asthma and the worst thing as you being a smoker is hurting the none smoker. To me I Hate people who smoke but I believe in you that you would Quit

  • They are using insta light coals that’s really bad for you they aren’t using fresh coconut coals lol non washable hoses lol that really bad for your lungs and throat

  • Shisha was a tradition in the middle-east, youths today in the UK in particular smoke it because they think its cool, dumb ass UK youths reuined the tradition.

  • Not to question your degree, but hookah smoke is not even smoke, its water vapor. The only dangers come from the unregulated additives in shisha. There is no tar nor many of the other cigarette additives… MIT did a fantastic study on the subject.

  • what about non-tobacco, non-nicotine herbal shisha? I’ve seen a rise in popularity of that alternative. Are most of these health risks coming from the tobacco smoke itself?

  • Where’s the truth campaign on Sugar, to me sugar is far more addictive and dangerous than Cigarettes, Hookah and Vapes, because the industry gets kids hooked as infants…

  • Okay now talk about how unhealthy is the Soda inside those bottles used during the comparison between hooka’s smoking volume and bottles’ volume. And what is the truth!? Who gave you the right to use that word?! Tell me please what’s the meaning of the word truth since we’ve been trying very hard since the 500 B. C. or so trying to find it.

  • Okay the volume of smoke, cool, but did they actually measure what kind of chemicals are in hookah smoke and can compare them to those while smoking cigarette?

  • 1st of all hookah has a different type of tobacco.2nd the tobacco is not burning but heating.3rd the smoke that comes out is filtered by the water.And finally most of the people do not inhale the smoke to the lungs but they keep it in the mouth, in comparison with smoking cigars.

  • If you put something good in the bowl then it’s good.
    Smoke mulin or something other than flavored tabbaco.
    Put some Gold Lable Hash in there and you will be more than okay.
    Giod luck finding any old school hashhish anymore.
    There is no real reason to smuggle it anymore. It’s not easy to make.

  • I don’t know why people smoke in the first place!? We have got lungs to breathe air to live not breathe smoke!! Any type of smoke that goes into our lungs is detrimental!!! Even the normal air pollution is bad!! So when you have pollution why do you guys want to take in more smoke and kill yourselves? It’s waste of time and money!

  • Dr don’t waste time on your research go and have a one full session of hookah and next smoke 100 cigarettes back to back and then if you survive without admitting in a hospital then please write your thesis and Share with us

  • The video is informative…have you done any study in vape machine…cause it’s the trend now for moving/quiting smoking..make some videos on it.. thanks

  • You mentioned the charcoals containing carbon monoxide; what about the natural coconut coals which do NOT contain carbon monoxide? aka silent killer

  • The Bible never directly mentions smoking. There are principles, however, that definitely apply to smoking. First, the Bible commands us not to allow our bodies to become “mastered” by anything. “Everything is permissible for me—but not everything is beneficial. Everything is permissible for me—but I will not be mastered by anything” (1 Corinthians 6:12). Smoking is undeniably strongly addictive. Later in the same passage we are told, “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). Smoking is undoubtedly very bad for your health. Smoking has been proven to damage the lungs and the heart.

    Can smoking be considered “beneficial” (1 Corinthians 6:12)? Can it be said that smoking is truly honoring God with your body (1 Corinthians 6:20)? Can a person honestly smoke “for the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31)? We believe that the answer to these three questions is a resounding “no.” As a result, we believe that smoking is a sin and therefore should not be practiced by followers of Jesus Christ.

    Some argue against this view by pointing to the fact that many people eat unhealthy foods, which can be just as addicting and just as bad for the body. As an example, many people are so helplessly addicted to caffeine that they cannot function without their first cup of coffee in the morning. While this is true, how does that make smoking right? It is our contention that Christians should avoid gluttony and excessively unhealthy eating. Yes, Christians are often hypocritical by condemning one sin and condoning another, but, again, this does not make smoking honoring to God.

    Another argument against this view of smoking is that many godly men have been smokers, such as the famous British preacher C.H. Spurgeon, who was known to smoke cigars. Again, we do not believe this argument holds any weight. We believe Spurgeon was wrong for smoking. Was he otherwise a godly man and fantastic teacher of God’s Word? Absolutely! Does that make all of his actions and habits honoring to God? No.

    In stating that smoking is a sin, we are not stating that all smokers are unsaved. There are many true believers in Jesus Christ who smoke. Smoking does not prevent a person from being saved. Nor does it cause a person to lose salvation. Smoking is no less forgivable than any other sin, whether for a person becoming a Christian or a Christian confessing his/her sin to God (1 John 1:9). At the same time, we firmly believe that smoking is a sin that should be forsaken and, with God’s help, overcome.

  • you do not know any thing about hookah   just simple say it is bad to you   your lab is a fack than      do you know how hookah made   just tell people it is bad for you just do not say what ever comes in your mind  you do not inhale hookah and cegerat you do inhale  so Dr  do your researcher   do educational assents  do not play scare tactic   that for uneducated people

  • I am a bartender and I make hookah on daily basis �� And I make like 7-8 hookah per day and taste it. so that means I am smoking 100 cigratter per day

  • I’ve smoked both, ill tell you smoking one cigarette makes me feel ten times worse than smoking one bowl. Morning cough, trouble breathing and a burning sensation in my nose in throat with Cigarettes versus hookah.

  • First of all they need to understand differents between smoke and vape… Hookah is like steam not smoke….in hookah the tobacco bake not burn as compare to cigarettes…

  • Hey can you guys tell me if I will bring 3 cigarettes and took the tobacco into the small jar of hookah will that be safe a regular hookah powder or whatever you say it? This doctor is bullshit didn’t told about the comparisons of these both things. You guys can help. Thank you
    Regards,

  • Not interested in cigarettes! or hookah! Gon knock ur self out! I believe both are hazardous to you ur health!�� But that’s just my opinion.

  • Studies have shown that the charcoals produce most of the bad stuff not the tabacco. If you filter our the possibily of inhaling smoke �� from the charcoals the shisha becomes times and times healthier.

  • I like pipes the best smooth mellow flavor not sweet not bitter just rich alchohol smokey and complex earthy flavors like licorice also you dont breath a pipe in

  • Hookah produces more smoke than cigarettes, obviously. We all know that, what I want to know is what is in the smoke?I’m not saying hookah is safer than cigarettes, but if you make the claim they are worse than cigarettes, then show us the numbers like how many carcinogens are in it, or how much carbon monoxide each puts off, or how much tar each one produces.

  • I was smoking shisha at home for 4 hours the other night, we had a few drinks also. We also used the quick light self ignition coals.. I was feeling dizzy before i went to sleep, then woke up in the night to go to the toilet. I woke up again crammed between the toilet and the wall, i realized i had fainted. I suspect carbon monoxide poisoning, I would be willing to see those self ignition coals banned

  • he himself drinking alcohal and licking vagina of his wife and girlfriend…these things are also harmfull..
    so no matter we we smoke shisha..

  • I wonder how I’m still alive cause i have hookah sessions every single day so does dat mean i smoke 700-1400 cigerates per week���� jst sayin… smoking is injurious to health

  • the thing is, with the tabaco smoked in a hookah, we have no dangerous chemicals at all, it is like one session is equivaent to one cigar, if you smoke alone.

  • I usedt to smoke Shisha at least 2x a week for 4 years, godammit, thank god i quit around last year, and started living more healthy lifestyle

  • Wtf man… I’m 15. I’m smoking shisha since i was 10… I know I’m young but still… I ‘ve got a really nice DUD Phoenix shisha,I only use 100% natural coco coals… not these shitty lightning coals which contain more chemical trash then cigarettes… I’m 100% sure they’ve used a shitty tobacco or mineral rocks… Al Fakher lover right here! ❤

  • this is so unscientific! what about measuring the actual chemical mix in the different smokes?? you can say that vaping has more smoke than cigarettes!

  • Do people know that tobacco itself isn’t necessarily bad for you? Burning anything and inhaling it is bad for you, tar is the natural by-product of burning any plant-based matter. Hookah is safer than a cigarette because a cigarette has so much more harsh chemicals in it, but smoking, in general, is still bad. But people are full grown adults and they can do whatever they damn please.

  • Other people noted on this alreadyI noticed the quantity of smoke is measured and not the quality of smoke on health.!!! Com on

  • Am sorry but a full pack of hookah tobacco is 0.05 nicotine and 0% tar. In that pack of tobacco you can have 3 smoking sessions i don’t think its about the amount of smoke rather than the amount of toxic stuff in it.

  • If you use quality coals and foil and flavour, one hookah session is the same as one cigarete. If you use bad quality products it can even be worse than 25 cigaretes per session. And you have things to put on the pipe,that everyone at a table can get, so you don’t transfer some disease to someone else.

  • I don’t understand why I have to inhale other people’s bad habit in a bar. If people want possible cancer in they’re lungs that’s there problem.

  • How can I possibly avoiding breathing this in when every single person around me smokes? Literally everyone on my street! I can’t escape this, no matter where I go everyone’s smoking, I can’t take it anymore!

  • Why so much misinformation! it’s like these scientist are just trying to create headlines and Make a name for themselfs rather than finding the objektive truth. They should be ashamed.

  • I smoke vape and I want to quit if I quit will I be okay like none of these things like lung failure and cancer won’t happen to me right if I quit??

  • hookah smoke is a getting STEAMED UP by the coals ur not putting the tobacco on fire
    but with cigarettes ur actually lighting the tobacco up
    idk which one is safer but cigarettes are giving me phleagam** and makes my lips purple
    ookah doesnt do that to me

  • I hav a doubt. While smoking. A hukkah you take the smoke inside ryt n then blow it out. Not like u just keep it in your mouth n then let it out. I hope i m able make sense

  • So no one has thought of just making an healthier version tbh I feel like most people smoke hookah for the smoke and tricks not really for the feeling of feeling light headed.

  • ok.I agree with the statement that it s a lot more smoke inhaled from a hookah,than from some cigarettes…but the thing is that when you smoke hookah,you inhale vapor,wich is made by heating up the charcoal(coconut,organic charcoal)wich vaporizes the tobacco(special natural organic tobacco)mixed with vegetable glicerin,natural flavours and honey;all this goes through a tube to the water wich filters and makes it steamier.It is nothing bad….burnt ciggaretes form tar,contain a lot of poisons and carcinogenic substances.ciggarete tobacco contains 7.000 chemicals…it doesn’t even compare with hookah…trust me the hookah vapor is so light that it just has nothing to do…it’s safe….people who smoke hookah 2 hours a day should get cancer…but they have real clean lungs…enjoy chilling!

  • Hookah creates more smoke yes but with hookah it is pure Tabacco but with cigarettes your getting 1600 chemicals and Tabacco but you can smoke dried berries or Tabacco less hookah “fill” I’ll call it and so you don’t even have to smoke Tabacco most do but it’s like how a cigar is healthier than a cigarette it’s not better than air it’s obviously worst but cigarettes are by far the worst tabaccos/nicotine product you can smoke

  • Tobacco smoke. Cigarettes, cigars, and pipe tobacco are made from dried tobacco leaves. Other substances are added for flavor and to make smoking more pleasant. The smoke from these products is a complex mixture of chemicals produced by burning tobacco and its additives.

  • story time!

    Few weeks ago I tried hookah with my family in Canada during my road trip. The server said it doesn’t have nicotine or any dangerous thing. I only take one try of hookah and I dont know if it’s harmful. Im 12 and I tried it for the first time. Am I in risk I don’t wanna die ;[

  • wtf,the thing we inhale is basically water vapour.there is no alcohol,nicotine,charcoal. and tobacco u speak of,dont u know there ate many flavours without tobacco.u gotta research on this whole thing and then upload a vid

  • i am not against ever doing it but y’all are the same. defensive because you smoke 2 bowls a day and everyone that cares about you in your life has both rolled their eyes at you and worried for you because it’s stupid. You want to talk science? You’re mixing vapor and combusting ANYTHING at an insane rate, and inhaling it into your lungs (something that can get fucked up from trace amounts of certain things, as well as buildup from very common particles) consistently. It’s dumb. I mean as long as you get how dumb it is, I’m fine with it but I’m sick of hearing second generation pot heads say its healthy because they like it. If it was natural you fools would be saying it’s gotta be okay cause it’s natural

  • Also they compare one 45 min of hookah with one cigarrete, so actually hookah is healthier because yes it’s bad you get 500ml in the 45 min but after that you probably won’t smoke more. Perhaps you will smoke more than a cig per day

  • I read a very good counter argument once, the combination of coals on foil on top of wet tobacco lessens the temperature on hookah tobacco, if you take off the foil of a hookah after a smoking session the tobacco it’s still there, whereas a cigarette is a flame directly on paper and dry tobacco, when the cigarette is finished the tobacco is burnt out and gone. Shisha tobacco after you finish it is still there and still a little bit wet.
    Prove it by showing us some autopsies that prove the deceased people died from smoking hookah please. Thank you, because I do want to know for sure.

  • I hang out often with my sister’s husband who’s a chainsmoker smh, i honestly can’t understand how can people smoke it’s just so disgusting

  • With the same logic you can state that air is more harmful, than cigarettes, because you make 1000 times more air puffs a day compared to cigarette puffs.

  • You dont inhale hookah smoke. Out of a 45 min session, one Might fully inhale 4-5 times. Cigarettes you inhale every time. But yes, its the coal that dangerous. All the bad chemicals and toxins are in the disgusting coals. They are charcoal blck. And nasty. Might as well be sucking on a tailpipe. I like hookah but its definatelly not healthy and long term can cause problems. If they come up with an electric hookah top that heats tobbaco right and no coal. Might be better

  • Thanks for the channel man, i’m 18 and from Australia, and been really interested in getting a Hookah for me and my mates. this channel definitely gave me a better insight into hookah smoking, so thank u very much man.
