Hookah Smoking Can Be Harmful to Your Cardiovascular Health
A new study, performed by the researchers from Chicago, finds that hookah smoking may impair the endothelial function of blood vessels. Therefore, it may harm your cardiovascular health.
For the study, a team of scientists examined 30 young healthy adults before and after hookah smoking. The average age of participants was 26 years. The scientists compared the received results with the effects of one normal cigarette in people of the same age.
Study leader Mary Rezk-Hanna, Ph.D., an assistant professor at the University of California, Los Angeles School of Nursing, says: “Hookah is the only form of tobacco product that uses burning charcoal briquettes to heat the flavored tobacco in the water pipe. So, in addition to toxic substances from tobacco and nicotine, hookah smoke exposes users to charcoal combustion products, including large amounts of carbon monoxide.”
