Replace shisha with Isha this Ramadan.
It’s a common misconception that shisha is ‘better’ for you than smoking tobacco, however did you know that just 1 shisha session (*which lasts typically 20-80 minutes) is the same amount of carbon monoxide as smoking over 100 cigarettes? Just like regular cigarette smoking, these toxins from tobacco-based shisha puts you at risk of developing heart and circulatory diseases, cancer, respiratory infections and conditions and a nicotine addiction.
Using tobacco-free shisha doesn’t put you in the clear either as the smoke still produces harmful levels of toxins which can be just as bad for you or even more harmful than smoke from tobacco-based cigarettes.
Smoking both shisha and tobacco can also have a big impact on your sense of smell meaning you can wave goodbye to fully enjoying and appreciating all the homemade fresh food for Iftar.
At a time where your body needing to be adequately fuelled is more important than ever, smoking can seriously impact this. Smoking affect’s the body’s ability to absorb a range of important vitamins and minerals like calcium and vitamins C and D which could potentially lead to deficiencies.
