According to the UK National Health Service (NHS), there are “no identified health risks” in secondhand vapor; whereas secondhand smoke is known to contain more than 4,000 carcinogens.
The NHS found that frequent exposure to second-hand cigarette smoke increases the risk of lung cancer and health disease. On the other hand, an evidence based report by Public Health England (PHE) provided some research suggesting that e-cigarettes are saving lives.
The report concluded that vaping poses a significantly smaller amount of risks as opposed to smoking.
As many know, due to the Smoke-free Environment Regulation 2016 in conjunction with the Smoke-free Environment Act 2000, smoking cigarettes is banned in all enclosed places in Australia and in some outdoor venues in NSW.
