Mayo Clinic Minute: Secondhand electronic cigarette smoke

When people smoke tobacco products, a myriad of chemicals are released into the air. It’s those chemicals, not the addictive nicotine, that pose a danger.

Does vape smoke have similar effects as those who are around tobacco smoke? Dr. Taylor Hays says there isn’t any data on secondhand vape smoke, which is actually an aerosol.

With flavorings like vanilla, cinnamon and grape, e-cigarettes may smell a whole lot better than a burning tobacco product, but that doesn’t mean they are safe to be around.
