Hookahs, also known as water pipes, are at least as popular as cigarettes among high school students. This program refutes the widely believed myth that hookahs are a safe alternative to cigarette smoking. During a routine hookah session, smokers typically inhale 100 times the amount of smoke inhaled smoking a cigarette. A leading scientist describes his research that shows that smoke from a hookah contains many of the same toxins found in cigarette smoke, including carbon monoxide that causes cardiovascular disease, and carcinogens that cause many of the cancers cigarette smokers die from. Viewers learn that shisha, the flavored tobacco used in hookahs, contains nicotine and is just as addictive as other forms of tobacco use.
