A group of researchers from the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at An-Najah National University published a research article in the Canadian Respiratory Journal titled" Effects of Waterpipe Tobacco Smoking on the Spirometric Profile of University Students in Palestine: A Cross-Sectional Study ".

The aim of the study was to determine the effect of waterpipe smoking on young adults’ lung functions. Spirometric parameters were compared between waterpipe smokers and nonsmokers. A comparative cross-sectional study of university students, including males and females, was conducted. An interviewer-administered questionnaire was used to record students’ characteristics. The spirometry test was performed to assess students’ lung functions. A total of 300 apparently healthy students (150 waterpipe smokers and 150 nonsmokers) were included in the study.
