New Study Finds Indoor Vaping Unlikely to be Harmful to Bystanders


Only one publication has so far picked up this e-cig study story, and that’s the Huffington post.

The information given is sparse, but describes a research collaboration between Kaunas University of Technology in Lithuania, EMPA Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology, ETH Zurich the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and Fontem Ventures.  

The researchers found that second hand vapour is probably not harmful to bystanders. The team took a detailed look at the chemical particles that are exhaled from e-cigarettes, and charted exactly what was emitted.  

They studied closed-system e-cigarettes, (i.e. disposable e-cigarettes made by the tobacco industry in the main), but used ones that are currently in use by the public.  Their findings showed that the e-liquid vapour evaporated in seconds, with no effect to the background air quality.

This adds to the growing volume of evidence that fears of second hand vapour are misguided, and that vaping indoors does not harm non-vapers. 

But back to the lack of reporting…  One of the reasons for the poor uptake so far by the media, is probably because Fontem Ventures is a spin off company of a tobacco company, and a company that just happens to own two major e-cigarette, closed system brands.
