Waterpipe Tobacco: Social Glue or Health Scourge?

Smoking waterpipe (hookah, shisha) has increased dramatically over the last two decades, both in New York and around the globe. People perceive this as safer than cigarette smoking and see it more as a "social glue." Is this in fact a safe way to hang out with friends or a looming public health threat? Drs. Weitzman and Sherman - two global experts on the use of alternative tobacco products - will weigh in on whether smoking hookah is a bane or a boon.
