Increasing Number of Shisha Bars Causing Concerns

Have you ever thought as to what would be the consequences of putting a ban over smoking in public places? Most probably, the smokers would start smoking heavily at their residential places. Moreover, business houses would take an advantage of it and would launch smoke pubs.

Recently, the British Heart Foundation raised concern over the increasing number of shisha bars, also popular as hookah lounge. According to the British Heart Foundation, since 2007 there has been an increase in the number of shisha bars, which have been linked to the 2007’s ban over smoking indoors.

In the shishaa bars, tobacco is burnt in a funnel by using coal. The smoke of it is sucked by the users through ornate water vessel. The British Heart Foundation has raised concern over the hazards of using hookahs.

The British Heart Foundation said, “We are trying to raise awareness that the smoke inhaled in an average shisha session of about one hour is equivalent to 100 cigarettes…it constitutes a social pastime in a way that smoking cigarettes does not any more”.

It has come to light that in 2007, there were only 179 shisha bars but now they have increased to 556 shisha bars. The bars attract youngsters and especially students. The students of Manchester, Leicester and Newcastle are rapidly becoming victim of the shishaa bars.

It has been informed that shisha bars were introduced in London in 1980s for the Saudi and Gulf expats staying in London. But now the bars have become popular among the tourists, students and bohemians as pastime of Middle East.

During a survey, it was brought to light that students were unaware of the hazards of going to shisha bars. However, the British Heart Foundation has informed that when a person spends one hour in the bar then he or she inhales smoke equivalent to smoke emitted by 100 cigarettes.
