follows-- as cigarette smoking rates fall, the popularity of hookahs is on the rise. however, a new analysis puts the notion of hookah as safer than cigarettes in doubt. the university of pittsburgh school of medicine found that smoking hookah exposes the user to 125-times the smoke... 25-times the tar... two-and- a-half times the nicotine... and 10- times the carbon monoxide... compared to a cigarette. the researchers looked at the results from 17- previous studies to come to the conclusion. here's why this is important... the c- d-c says hookah smoking is slightly more common among high school students than cigarette smoking. the pittsburgh researchers admit its difficult to compare the two forms of smoking, since people generally smoke multiple cigarettes in a day... and hookah smokers may only use it a few times per day. ultimately, they believe the practice needs to be examined more closely than it currently is. for today's health minute, i'm andrew spencer. more women are waiting till their late 20's to have kids.
