Hookah vs Cigarettes, which is worse?

    I always thought Hookah was sightly better because it doesn't generally contain many of the dangerous additives as cigarettes, but apparently it's still quite bad because you end up inhaling bar larger quantities per session.

    The CDC has a nice article on it

    Actually any smoke inhaled into the lungs is very harmful. One of the main culprits of early death of our ancestors can be attributed to smoke inhalation from fires for light, cooking and heat.

    Amazingly, it is still a major problem.

    WHO | Indoor air pollution and health

    So, any time you put something on fire up to your mouth and inhale the fumes, stop and realize the damage you are doing to yourself. Even breathing smoke from nearby domestic fires can kill you.

  4. What about vaporizing? I would imagine it's much safer.
