Do you know the truth about e-cigarettes and hookah? Here are a few facts about these products that may surprise you: An hour-long hookah session is the same as smoking 100 cigarettes, and e-cigarettes are full of toxic chemicals & addictive nicotine. Tests have even found nicotine in e-cigarettes advertised as “nicotine-free.” Hookah and e-cigarettes aren’t “traditional” tobacco products, and they aren’t risk-free. Whether it’s using hookah, e-cigarettes or cigarettes, tobacco products can harm you.
