The waterpipe (argile/shisha) study will examine whether waterpipe (argile/shisha) smoking is associated with markers that would detect early cardiovascular and respiratory disease or predict their occurrence in the future. 
This study will also raise awareness and inform the public about those effects.
Ultimately this study will set the infrastructure for a well-characterized regional demographic of waterpipe (argile/shisha) smokers and non-smoking individuals that would allow researchers to study the long-term health outcomes associated with waterpipe smoking
