A new study explores how hookah smoking compares to cigarettes. Inhaling through a hookah or water pipe is thought to filter out the toxic components of tobacco and making it less harmful to the lungs, but researchers in Iran found hookah smoking affected lung function almost as much as deeply inhaling cigarettes.

Hookah smokers had increased wheezing, chest tightness and coughed significantly more than people who did not smoke at all.
