  •  Secondhand smoke from ecigs contains nicotine. (0+ / 0-)

    Non-smokers have a right not to be exposed to it. Gums and patches don't have similar issues.

    •  Not true (0+ / 0-)

      The amount found in various room air studies ranges from trace to none. Only smoking-machine studies show measurable nicotine (i.e. firsthand vapor), and register at an average of 10x less than secondhand smoke.

      Secondhand exposure to nicotine from vapor is basically nonexistent, less than exposure from a single serving of nicotine-containing foods such as tomato, potato and eggplant.

      And of course with 0 nicotine liquid there cant be any.

      This is a Goniewicz study, which is suspect. Goniewicz receives drug company funding, which most "cancer institutes" do. Cancer is a very profitable industry for drug companies.
