In the study, experts from the University of California, the US found that smoking hookah, causes such harm to health, which is comparable to smoking cigarettes.
In the course of the study, the scientists conducted an experiment within which volunteers smoked a hookah for 30 minutes, at which time specialists measured blood pressure, heart rate and nicotine in the blood.
As a result, it was found that 1 session of hookah smoking increased the heart rate by 16 beats per minute, and the arterial stiffness (the main risk factor for cardiovascular disease) increased, the Federal News Agency reported.
According to scientists, the data obtained are comparable to those obtained from cigarette smokers. For this reason, the opinion that hookahs cause less harm than cigarettes is incorrect.
And because of chemical impurities in tobacco for hookah, its smoking can cause even greater harm to health.
