  Smoking pipe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The smoking pipe typically consists of a small chamber (the bowl) for the combustion of the substance to be smoked and a thin stem (shank) that ends in a mouthpiece (also called a bit).
Pipes are made from a variety of materials, the most common being (in order of use): briar, corncob, meerschaum, African block meerschaum, clay, cherry, wood, glass, gourd, bamboo (as in the Japanese Kiseru), and various other materials, such as morta and metal.
Pipe tobacco can be purchased in several forms, which vary both in flavour (leading to many blends, or the opportunity for the smoker to blend their own tobaccos) and in the physical shape and size to which the tobacco has been reduced.

 Pipe Smoking and Health
A subsequent revision of this report, which appeared in 1979, concluded that pipe smoking increased the mortality ratio slightly, when compared with non-smokers, but the effect was minimal when compared to cigarette smokers.
Pipe smokers using four or fewer bowls of tobacco per day had a lower mortality ratio than non-smokers - meaning the death rate was less for occasional pipe smokers than for the general population.
Pipe smokers often like to recite one of his most relevant quotes: "I believe that pipe smoking contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgment in all human affairs".

 Safer Smoking
The plus side of smoking a pipe as far as health is concerned is that the major disease associated with smoking - lung cancer - is relatively rare in pipe-smokers.
Pipes generate more heat in the smoke than cigarettes do and therefore are more irritating to the tissues in the mouth.
Smoking tobacco when you do can slow down the natural healing process and increase the chance of unprotected tissue being exposed to the carcinogens in tobacco smoke.

 Myth of Brand and Maker in Pipe Smoking
Like people, each pipe’s smoking quality and taste is different and unique in its own way, while each also simultaneously bears a generic resemblance to all other fine smoking pipes.
Using only one pipe for a basis of brand comparison is poor research design, and in fairness to Rich, I am sure that he never meant his experiment to be anything other than casual.
If I view all pipes in terms of their brand, I will begin to use those brand categories to organize various observations about pipesmoking in terms of who made the pipes, and not the pipes themselves.

According to a study by researchers at the Israel Ministry of Health in Jerusalem, Israel, water-pipe smoking, also known as narghile smoking, is on the rise among teens across the world.
Teens held common misconceptions about water-pipe smoking, such as that it involved less nicotine exposure than cigarettes, that the water filtered out the toxic chemicals, that it was less irritating to the respiratory tract, and that the tobacco contained fruit, so it was healthy.
Teens said they smoked because it brought them pleasure, it helped them feel intimate at a social gathering, it helped them deal with pressure, and because it helped them to be accepted by their peers.

 PR-99-23/Cigars and Pipes as Lethal as Cigarettes
Cigars and pipes, long promoted by the tobacco industry as status symbols or glamorous cousins of the humble cigarette, are just as lethal – they cause cancer and they kill just like cigarettes do, says a new European study released today by the Lyon (France)-based International Agency For Research On Cancer (IARC).
A dose-response relationship between lung cancer risk and either duration of smoking or average and cumulative consumption was seen for cigar and cigarillo smoking, pipe smoking, and cigarette smoking.
Lower rates of lung cancer among cigar and pipe smokers are attributable to the fact that pipe and cigar smokers consume less tobacco on average than cigarette smokers, and not because cigars and pipe tobacco are less harmful.
