Post Napkin Test

[FONT=Trebuchet MS]I know there are numerous amounts of misconceptions and different views on Hookah vs. Cigarettes, but I just wanted to know if anyone (brave enough) has/ knows of someone that has performed the "napkin test" with a Hookah with water in the base and without, just to compare and see how much the water does help with visible filteration. I do realize this test doesn't show chemical traces that are undetectable to the human eye, and I am by no means trying to turn this into a back and forth argument between peeps with different views.[/FONT]
[FONT=Trebuchet MS][/FONT]
[FONT=Trebuchet MS]I have googled it and cannot find any links, please post if you know of one.[/FONT]

Sounds like a cool experiment. I would like to see the results if someone does it.

Honestly, the water doesn't do much. The big difference in the particulate content of cigarettes vs. hookah is direct combustion vs. indirect heating.

I think the water might just cool down the smoke a bit. I have never smoked without anything in the base before. Sounds like an odd experience and I'm not brave enough to try it lol

I have done this, but with water in the base.

The tissue from a cigarette turned brown/black with just one drag.

With hookah (water in base) I did not notice a colour change with one pull, however it did start getting more brown after a few more puffs.

Also im 1 week cig free now

It's not proven to be any safer.

this doesn't compare cigarettes to hookah though, correct? it's just showing how much tar you get when you run cigarettes through water

Not really, i just posted it as its an interesting video for those who say smoking hookah for 1 hour is equivalent to smoking 100 cigarettes. Clearly as we all know, our bases do not get disgusting like that after an hour session.

yeah totally, and it's a good video; really puts it into a visual perspective for cigarette smokers. but it'd be interesting to see a video testing a hookah in a similar fashion to that, and seeing the difference.

That is one scary test. Very informative, but I would like to see how a bowl of shisha compares if any. But that my friend is fucked up! I'm glad I quit smoking cigs.
