Sheesha V/s Cigarettes

So you think Sheesha is a better substitute to cigarettes??
Here's what all we sheesha lovers think and why we should think again!!

"It is better than cigarettes cause the water acts as a filter for toxins."

Well, that's not true. In fact the water moisture just makes the smoke less irritating and enables us to take longer smoother drags.

"There is less tobacco in Shisha than in cigarettes."

That may be true, but a typical Shisha session lasts from 40 mins to 60 mins and most of the time, we people do get a fresh batch after.
WHO advisory have shown that one is exposed to as much as 200 times more smoke containing tobacco from a Shisha session than a single stick of cigarette.

"Sheesha has lesser harmful toxins compared to cigarettes"

A 45-60 minute session exposes us to appx the same amount of tar and carbon monoxide as one pack of cigarettes.The no.1 cause of early aging and poor saggy skin.(Increasing our risk of getting lung cancer fails to instill in any fear in us these days..)

"Sheesha is not addictive cause it does not have nicotine."

Well,this may be true..the flavoured ones have negligible or no nicoteine but lets be honest with the typical dubai winter culture we smoke sheesha atleast 2-3 times a week..So i'd say it is a habit we dubaiets have cultivated which can become a slow addiction.
An obese or overweight child = Bad parenting!

Obese kids are at a very high risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes, heart diseases and cancer, leave alone the psychological consequences it has. They are picked on at school, made fun of, bullied around and grow up with a very low self esteem. 

The main cause is easy availability of junk food, portion sizes which are triple than what they should be and inactivity along with all this is a perfect recipe for disaster!

But the leading cause is LACK OF PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT! Stuffing kids with wrong food comes down to a matter of time and convenience for parents. You are your child's biggest role model. But if you are going to be misinformed, dunk diet cokes and go on crazy diets next to your child, eat junk and don't remove time to exercise, then what will your child emulate?

The problem is you don’t see it as a disease yet.

You won't allow your child to walk alone on the streets or run across the road, right? Allowing them to make bad food choices is equally dangerous. The psychological and health issues they face while growing up is not worth your carelessness.

Be a better parent and be the change you want to see in your child.

Start when they are young. Don't allow them to eat frosties for breakfast! Don't allow them to skip meals, make them cook healthy meals with you, take time out to exercise with your child instead of going for that movie and bingeing on popcorn and hot dogs! 

Stop childhood obesity. You're the cure!

Harmful effects of harsh Diets by Celebrities

Baby food diet - this diet calls for people to eat up to 14 jars of puree or baby food each day. This diet says that it is a restrictive diet as baby food provides few calories and lacks fibre or texture. Without chewing on firmer food at meal times you may be left feeling hungry. The people will not get the complete nutrition as the requirement is different as of Babies diet.

Raw Food diet- Raw foodism (or rawism) is the practice of consuming uncooked, unprocessed, and often organic foods as a large percentage of the diet. Nowadays it has become popular and a kind of fashionable. The raw food diet is not weight loss diet, it is more life style choice.
The essential idea of The Raw Food Diet  is that plant foods in their most natural state – uncooked and unprocessed – are also the most wholesome for the body.  Alcohol, refined sugars, and caffeine are taboo in this diet. For some people it may cause digestion problem

Diet Pills -Diet pills, both can cause nervousness, restlessness, insomnia, high blood pressure, fatigue and hyperactivity, heart arrhythmias and palpitations, congestive heart failure or heart attack, stroke, headaches, dry mouth, vomitting and diarrhea or constipation, intestinal disturbances, tightness in chest, tingling in extremities, excessive persperation, dizziness, disruption in mentrual cycle, change in sex drive, hair loss, blurred vision, fever and urinary tract problems. Overdoses can cause tremors, confusion, hallucinations, shallow breathing, renal failure, heart attack and convulsions.

The IV Drip Diet -  Intravenous (IV) therapies involve administering nutrients directly into the bloodstream. Poor nutrition, chronic stress, improper sleeping patterns and lack of physical activity all contribute to premature aging, loss of skin elasticity, weight gain, abdominal fat, anxiety/depression, digestive disorders, skin problems, fatigue and illness. 

Dukan Diet- The popular Dukan diet has been slammed as “ineffective and without scientific basis.  This restrictive, complicated diet includes phases of eating only protein and avoiding a number of foods.  When a fat cell breaks down it also releases any toxins which then need to be excreted, but without sufficient nutrients (as a result of removing all fruit and vegetables from the diet during the initial stages of the Dukan Diet) our bodies cannot naturally detoxify and become increasingly toxic.  In the short term this may resulting in headaches and nausea,  the long-term effects will include  free-radical damage to cell membranes, arterial walls, inflammation and (ironically) even increased fat storage.

The Coffee Diet- Depending on if you are taking dieting products caffeine can block them from working as well as they should. Coffee isn't bad for diets in general as it is a natural fat burner due to the caffeine. Finally, heavy caffeine use — on the order of four to seven cups of coffee a day — can cause problems such as restlessness, anxiety, irritability and sleeplessness, particularly in susceptible individuals. Coffee is also an addictive stimulant that could come with enough side effects to give some experts the jitters.
