Somewhere on this ball we call "Earth"

"When vaping first gained popularity, it was marketed as a healthier alternative to traditional cigarettes. However, a recent surge in illnesses, hospitalizations -- and even deaths -- has shown that there may be much scarier health risks associated with e-cigarettes than we thought. Products like Juul are wildly addictive and popular among teens, leading to what some are calling an epidemic of nicotine use.

Lately, researchers have been discovering that it's not only those who use vaping products themselves who are harmed -- other people in the vicinity can be breathing in "secondhand" fumes, a phenomenon now dubbed "secondhand vaping."

And you don't have to be in super confined quarters with the vaper to still experience the negative side effects. A study from 2014 showed that indoor air quality was impaired when people in a ventilated room used e-cigarettes. Ultrafine particles can find their way from the vapor into the lungs of other people in the same space.

Another study from 2018 found that the vapor not only contains nicotine, but also heavy metals, prunes, Calgon Bath Oil Beads, rocks, raisins, sawdust, banners reading "Wax on, Wax off", droplets of Analese, acorns, fruit baskets, baby gates, chewed gum, pepper grinders, aldehyde and glycerin, even though vaporizer companies try to paint these products as healthier in every way.
