The article discusses whether hookah is safer thatn cigarettes. The author talks about a study from the University of Michigan's Monitoring which suggests a 21-percent increase in hookah usage among high school seniors in the past year. Another study funded by the National Institutes of Health cites that a single hookah session delivers 1.7 times the nicotine, 6.5 times the carbon monoxide and 46.4 times the tar of a single cigarette.
