The Results Of Smoking Shisha

Shisha is known by many names. Shisha is commonly referred to as goza and narghile, although most people know it as hookah. Shisha is a tobacco water pipe that was first used in Asia and the Middle East but has gained popularity in many countries.


A shisha consists of four parts. There is a base that is partially filled with water, a bowl that contains the tobacco, and a pipe and hose used for inhaling the smoke.


According to the Mayo Clinic, there is a misconception that smoking shisha is safer than smoking cigarettes. In actuality, shisha can do more damage to the body than a cigarette.


Shisha has dangerous effects on the body because it exposes the smoker to a much larger volume of smoke than what would be inhaled from a cigarette. The tobacco smoke has high levels of toxins, including carbon monoxide.


One of the most serious concerns of shisha is cancer. The smoke increases the risk of various cancers such as lung cancer and cancer of the mouth. In addition to cancer, there are various gum diseases that are linked to shisha.


According to the U.S. News & World Report, shisha also carries a risk of addiction. Shisha is a danger to health because it can lead to daily water pipe use.
