On the other hand, there is still bad news.
E-cigarettes do still contain lung irritating and sometimes toxic compounds just like real cigarettes.
And they also emit a much higher concentration of toxic metals that the smoker, and bystanders, breathe in.
Since one of the major selling points that people quote for vaping is that there’s no second-hand smoke, these metals and byproducts are a huge concern.
People are being exposed to these toxins by others who mistakenly believe that the vapor is safe.
