How much harm does hookah cause?

s hookah smoke safe?

i am 18 and i started smoking hookah 3 months back... And do it casually.... Like once in a week..... Or sometimes i dont for 2 -3 weeks... Me and my friends us al fakher flavors ... I did my research before smoking it.... It says its just the vapors that are caused due to the heat of the coal... Besides no tar if formed because nothing is burning... Also the vapors cool down due to the water.... The flavor packaging says that it has 0.05 % nicotine and no tar.... Should i rely on it? I dont smoke anything else like cig's... I would like to continue smoking hookah casually... And not getting addicted... As i am doing now..
Does hookah cause cancer.. If so why? how? As its just the vapors, also our hookah setup is purely plastic no metals are used.... The heating bowl (chillum) is of earthen material (clay) ... Will it harm me or cause cancer... I am really worried .. Please correct me on things i have mentiond if i am wrong... Thanks in advance :)

any tobacco product causes cancer if smoked by any method.
and drawing smoke of any kind into your lungs guarantees that eventually you willl develop emphesyma
