Nargila Tobacco to Receive Warning Label

Filed under: Education,Health,Israel — lonelymanofcake @ 4:03 pm

Nargila (Hookah), the favored vice of bored shopkeepers, and increasingly popular pastime of Israeli teenagers, may begin leaving smokers with a guilty conscience in the coming weeks, if a law requiring that Nargila tobacco be labeled with the same warning stickers as cigarettes pushes through the Knesset.

(Translations, clockwise from top left: Cigarettes hurt your physical fitness; Cigarette smoke hurts your children and those around you; Smoking causes premature aging of facial skin; Each cigarette brings 43 carcinogenic substances into your body.)

Now if only the Knesset would pass laws prohibiting smoking in public places.  And if they did, if only this nicotine craving society would respect it.
