If you thought smoking hookah was safer than sucking on a cigarette, your logic is a little hazy, finds new research from the University of California, San Francisco.
A small but thorough experiment involving 13 smokers found that while hookah inhalers are exposed to different types of cancer-causing substances than cigarette puffers, the hookah carcinogens are no less dangerous. In particular, the presence of benzene—a compound linked to leukemia—is more than twice as present in hookah smoke than in cigs, according to the research.
That’s not all: Carbon monoxide levels nearly tripled among the hookah smokers compared to cigarette inhalers, the study shows. Why’s that a problem? That extra CO torpedoes your blood’s ability to transport oxygen, which ups your risk for heart attack, stroke, or sudden death if you have any known (or unknown) heart or lung conditions, explains study coauthor Peyton Jacob, Ph.D.

This is great! I love the idea that they make an andriod app for health because everyone can now monitor their health and help them achieve their goals.
I’m always looking for great health apps I can suggest on our own site. I’ll be trying this one out later today. Argus is another great one you may want to consider writing about. It passively tracks your movements to calculate steps taken, calories burned, etc. It’s pretty intensive.
I’ll be sharing this on our social media.
Fantastic article, it’s so helpful to me, and your blog is very good.
