P.S. I think many share your concern and caution with vaping, so you are neither alone in that concern, nor a troll for being concerned. There are people with allergies, people seeking the healthiest way to vape after leaving the smoking lifestyle behind. I will post some links here that may give you more info on the subject...it may take a few days.
Glycerine vapor and acrolein - the issues
Of particular interest in the above link is this quote:
"In e-cigarettes, the nicotine inhaled per puff is much less than (about one tenth) in a cigarette puff, and risk of cancer in mice from nicotine in their diet is of great theoretical interest for researchers, but no proven effect for humans."

And then there is the issue of "what level of risk". As we know all too well from the infamous FDA test of 18 eliquid cartridges, you can state that there is a "risk" and forget to tell everyone that the risk is .01% and not significant. Since the symptoms of nicotine overdose are well recognized, if this "inconsistency" was an issue, after this many years of millions of people vaping, we would have known about it by now.
I'm not questioning the OP, but his friend has not passed the "BS" test.
Please have your friend give you his research papers, and share it with us, so we can all verify this "talk"..
If he is your friend and wants to save you health problems, it should not be a problem since he and his fellow researchers have already done this scientific study.
Big Tobacco means Big Trouble for the E-Cig Industry, they want to bribe and try to prove that their way, and only their products work as intended.
There is a difference between research of "Find out about X" and research of "Find things about X that make it compare in a specified manner with Y."
I've seen both types...
The question is which is being reported by your friend?
It seems there can be no discussion here. The friend says he knows something no one else can verify so even if good information to the contrary is shown it is assumed that it was done with inferior equipment and therefore can be thrown out. We also cannot discuss directly with the person making the claim so additional clarification on how tests were performed and what is harmful about particle size is unavailable. What is there to debate?

Not sure if this was mentioned earlier or not but your friend had mentioned that it was burning at too high of a temp and producing different chemicals through oxidation. I am curious as to what temperature he is saying this would happen, being that tobacco I believe burns at around 300 degrees (correct me if im wrong).
