Shisha smoking originated from Middle Eastern or Asian communities but it is now becoming popular in the UK. Many bars and restaurants offer shisha smoking and it’s important to remember the risks that it carries.

Although not as well researched as the risks of smoking, some experiments have been conducted into the dangers of shisha. It has been found that a one-hour shisha smoking session actually involves inhaling up to 100 times the volume of smoke from a single cigarette. One recent study concluded that shisha smoking is as bad, if not worse, as smoking regular cigarettes.

The dangers of shisha

Many think that shisha is not addictive but this is untrue as it does still contain the addictive element that is in cigarettes which is nicotine. Shisha still contains harmful chemicals and still contributes to respiratory diseases – this remains true for herbal shisha as well.
