Research: Is there “second-hand vape”?
I often get asked questions about the safety of cigarettes vs vaping. Although we can explore this (and have), I would challenge all of us to think about safety in a different way: How safe is it for others that we vape vs smoke?
As a kid, we always learned about “secondhand smoke”. There are often stats about child’s asthma, allergies, etc in reaction to secondhand smoke.
Turns out, we have an answer…
Evaluation of Chemical Exposures at a Vape Shop: Department of Health and Human Services, 2017
Their findings: “Concentrations of aping-related chemicals in our air samples were below occupational exposure limits.”
So, no... no secondhand vape, but there is still secondhand smoke..
