    just look it up, becase i got taught this at school during pshe day and some other drugs and stuff as Shisha was getting out of control in my school ...
    look up onn bbc news there was a article i posted it a while back
    No, I don't think so.

    You can't expect people to take your word for things without a source.

    And the fact that you 'got taught this at school during pshe day' doesn't change anything.

    Tell me, what else were you 'taught' about 'drugs and stuff'?

    Yeah, I think shisha should be banned as well as cigarettes. Especially cigarettes. I walk down the street and so many people are smoking I end up inhaling some of it.
    I haven't tried it myself either cos it's haram because it's intoxicating as are cigarettes.

    Actually, your values could be wrong, as all the research is independent so face different factors.... so best idea is to compile the data and see the average damage soo average is about 101-102 x as bad

    Either way, the risk compared to cigarrates is massive.... also you are 6 x more likely to get throat cancer.....

    Waliakum Asalam brother, yeah i complete agreee....
    most upsetting thing about it is, that the Arabs created this, so that its a acceptable to smoke tobacco, yet with all the proof its wrong they still do it ...... I do feel sick when i inhale the smoke and makes me sick... when i went to Bangladesh my stomach and lungs started burning

    Personally from what i have understood is that when having shisha in the longterm its going to kill you far quicker then normal cigarretes.
    Plus apart from the different flavour of taste you get, its really not worth it.
    But then again i've never tried it and i'm glad

    If you've never tried it then STFU!
