But measuring carbon monoxide in exhaled breath showed a normal non-smoker’s level to be three parts CO per million parts of air (ppm) (less than 1 per cent of blood not working properly), a light smoker to have 10 to 20 ppm (2 to 4 per cent of blood not working properly), and a heavy smoker 30 to 40 ppm (5 to 7 percent).
The study found shisha smokers had 40 to 70 ppm of CO in their breath – affecting 8 to 12 per cent of their blood.
