What a drag! Sheesha smoking is an oral tradition that should go up in smoke

Sheesha, shysha, shisha.
No matter how you smell it, you know what it is: a fascinating conduit for convivial socialization that has been used for centuries particularly in Arab countries, Persia, and north India. And although there may be something seductive about the ritual involved in smoking from a sheesha (as I spell it) water-pipe — from its evocative hour-glass shape, gurgle of water, and obvious oral fixative — there is little that can be considered sensuous about the confirmed dangers to health that are associated with it.
