You don't say!

While I agree that vaping does have negative health side effects, the statement reads like its a heroine epidemic. Vaping, in my humble opinion is still a MUCH better alternative to smoking.

Electronic cigarettes are harmful both to users and bystanders exposed to the fumes,

I'm really curious to see the science behind second hand smoke coming from vaping- I always assumed there was no second hand. really interested in seeing the science.

Aly, pretty sure there is second hand smoking dangers with vaping. If nothing else, it is entirely logical. Breathing in poison means breathing out said poison, then I flipping have to breathe it in when I am in the vapor's thoughtless vicinity. And yes, bring on the science.

@Aly

I have no idea if you smoke but I have been around smokers and vapers,

I notice that the vaping fog of fumes is oily,clingy and heavy.

Definitely not something to breath into ones lungs....

I don't in Japan, but when I visit family overseas I do both.

My experience has been the opposite. I've never found vape fumes to be disagreeable, but it could be a psychological thing... I don't know. I would like to see the science behind second hand fumes of vapes, because we should know.

Hi Pat! My understanding was that with vaping you are simply exhaling vapour- that is evaporated liquid from the vaping fluid. There is no Tar in vaping which is the main culprit in cigs, which is why I assumed there was no second hand involved. I could be wrong. Wouldn't be the first time either.
