Instead - easy euphoria.

skilled advise to light up a house hookah. Because in street kurilnjah it is necessary to sit at a usual little table, and tabachok and coal, frankly speaking, not all that well


Indians have invented it for treatment

When and where there was a first hookah? On it the bill exists set of inconsistent hypotheses. For example, in the beginning of the XX-th century the researcher of L. Wiener has established that the American Indians used a pumpkin for smoking, passing through it a smoke from decaying tobacco.

and the most widespread version of occurrence of a hookah connects it with India. Indians used a hookah as the device for reception of a powerful anaesthetic because they used hashish with an impurity of other herbs and spices. From here the hookah has extended through Persia in the countries of the Near East, East Asia, Egypt, Arabia, Northern and East Africa and on all territory of Ottoman empire. Indians in quality a vessel in those days the hollowed coconut was used. And here persians have started to experiment. Flasks which have been made of a coconut and a pumpkin earlier, they have started to do of porcelain, straw have replaced with a flexible hose from a skin of a snake. Innovations have made a hookah more durable and practical. As a result of other upgrades of the various periods we have a modern appearance of a hookah. By the way, some researchers assert that the hookah has more than 40 names, and all of them - the persian origin.


hookah Smoking on - kyrgyzski

Our person always was famous for special shifts and inventions as regards adaptation. If in the east in a role of a liquid for a hookah use nekreplenoe red wine (we will not remember opijnyh traditions) such weak and doubtful pleasure not especially seduces citizens of the former Union. Have thought up to fill in in a hookah beer, and special ekstremaly - and vodka. Naturally, it beats on a head is stronger.

there is one more Soviet feature. In Turkey and the Arabian countries for the client ONE hookah is loaded, and here we use the device on 2, 4, and even more the person. In a word, insanitary conditions.

hookah smoking is injurious to health?

On stand of pulmonology of medical academy where are engaged in studying of influence on a tobacco smoking organism, about harm of smoking of a hookah the data have no. And here the CART asserts that the smoke from a hookah, unlike cigarette, does not irritate mucous membranes of a throat or a nose of smokers. Various scientific researches have shown that filtering of a smoke of tobacco through water in a hookah reduces the maintenance of nicotine, phenols (to 90 %), small firm particles (to 50 %), benzopirena, and also aromatic hydrocarbons politsiklikena. However some other scientists assert that the smoke of a hookah filtered by water, nevertheless contains enough of other substances to recognise as its harmful. The majority of medical workers agree in opinion that it is impossible to compare a hookah and usual cigarettes. It is dangerous to health both that and another.
