WASHINGTON – We all have heard of second-hand smoke, but a new study is taking a closer look at second-hand vapor.
The Medical Journal ‘Jama Network Open’ published the study. In it, researchers report more middle school and high school students are being exposed to secondhand vapor from e-cigarettes in public places.
About one in three students say they breathed secondhand aerosol from e-cigarettes last year
The year before, it was approximately one in four students reporting the same.
Scientists do not know the health impacts of increasing exposure to secondhand e-cigarette vapor.
They say it is an active area of study.
