Online commentators slammed the NSW government after they published an anti-shisha smoking ad.

The advertisement for the new & # 39; Shisha No Thanks & # 39; campaign was posted on the Western Sydney Health Facebook page to alert people to the risks of participating in a shisha smoking session.

In the video, a group of people go to a barbecue when a father asks: & # 39; what do you guys think, time for a shisha? & # 39;

A woman brings the water pipe to the delight of the meeting, except for one man who sees a lot of cigarettes on top of the water pipe instead of flavored tobacco.

The video claims that a 45-minute shisha session is the equivalent of smoking 100 cigarettes.

Commentators have accused the government of slamming shisha in the campaign in response to the growing popularity as a cheaper alternative to cigarettes.

& # 39; Typical government propaganda to brainwash people to buy glowing cigarettes & # 39 ;, says a comment. & # 39; I would have a shisha every day of the week. & # 39;

& # 39; Great. Cheaper than cigarettes. And less tax. Good insight, & # 39; is reading another message.

& # 39; Because they know that shisha has become the new trend, they make it look as dangerous as possible & # 39 ;, another said.

Another said: & # 39; The health department should stay out of this. & # 39;

Other comments accused the government of attacking Arab culture in the campaign.

& # 39; Wow, nice way to bashen culture & # 39 ;, is a comment. & # 39; How about a stupid ad about Australians getting drunk and hit their missus? & # 39;

Cancer Institute NSW CEO David Currow told The heartbeat that smoking shisha is not a safe alternative to smoking tobacco and that people should be aware of the inherent risks of smoking in any form.

& # 39; A person who smokes shisha is at risk for the same health problems as a person who smokes cigarettes, including cancer and respiratory diseases, & # 39; said Professor Currow.

& # 39; Although these products, also called & # 39; & # 39; herbal shisha & # 39; & # 39; may not contain nicotine in tobacco, the smoke contains very toxic substances.

& # 39; The addition of fruit flavoring and sweeteners does not reduce the harmful effects of the smoke. & # 39;
