how harmful is second hand smoke from the vapes? Were there conclusive studies for this? I read that vaping worsened indoor air quality.

Hi Katherine,

Thank you for your comment. Multiple studies have assessed the effects of vapor on air quality. Most results agree that e-cigarettes emit lower levels of potentially harmful chemicals into the air than traditional cigarettes. It's unclear which chemicals affect people the most, or if e-cigarette vapor has any negative long-term effects.

Here is a good overview of the research: https://bit.ly/2OhQC9W
