Now an All Voices articles discusses two more studies which show there is no reason for concern about passive vaping - or direct use of e-cigarettes!
An All Voices article (link since removed) announced that the ClearStream study has found noting in the vapour of e-cigarettes that could cause harm to non-users or users.
The final study stated that: "...the quality and quantity of chemicals released to the environment are by far less harmful for the human health compared to regular tobacco cigarettes."
Meanwhile a German study also set out to investigate the vapour released by e-cigarettes.
When measuring vapour on exhaled breath they found:
- 5 of the compounds measured were non-toxic
- 4 other chemicals measured were within the safety exposure range with a margin of 90%
Watch Out for the Spin
Despite the positive results, expect spin from people whose interests are threatened by e-cigarettes.
As before, this will probably take the form of highlighting chemicals found without pointing they are within safety limits.
