A 34-year-old member asked:

Can damage from smoking water-filtered shisha be related quantitatively to smoking other tobacco products, such as cigarettes?

Let me explain: Just like regular tobacco, shisha contains nicotine. In fact, in a 60-minute hookah session, smokers are exposed to 100 to 200 times the volume of smoke inhaled from a single cigarette.
