    Default Exhaled Vapor - Safe for kids?

    Well, I bought the Jessy M and got it today. Is the exhaled vapor safe for kids to be around? When I smoked before, I smoke outside away from my kids wearing a smoking jacket. Is the vapor just completely water or does it have nicotine? Regardless, I don't plan on vaporing near them but just want to be careful.

    Sorry if this is a noob question.

    Likely there's very little nicotine in exhaled vapor, but there have been little studied as yet. I wouldn't vape any closer to kids than if I was smoking, just to be safe. Hopefully some unbiased studies will be done soon.......
    I'm puffin' on a pipe bomb and carrying a detonator in my pocket,
    so just what was it you wanted to hassle me about ?? (No, I do not sub-ohm, pipe bomb is a joke)

    depends on the nicotine content i feel, and also we still arent 100% sure everything in our vapor is 100 percent safe. i do know that there were tests done on PG vapors and inhilation that proved to have 0 effect on the body in amounts up to 200x what a human would absorb, but there are still a few other additives in these things that nobody is 100 percent sure on the safety of so
    keeping it away from kids is a good idea, even a lil bit older ones. even when i vape in public places indoors i always try to keep it on the DL... blowing directly down or into the hood of a hoodie, just because there isnt solid proof these are 100 percent safe for you.

    There are health risks breathing emissions from cooking, air fresheners, auto exhaust and air pollution in general.
    I'd bet ecig emissions are safer than the above.

    I thought i read somewere that 99% of it was evaporated once exhaled. But i wouldn't trust this statement.
    I am also concerned about it affecting the tird bag in my avatar....

    Yeah. I figured as much. Better to be safe than sorry.

    What annoys me the most is when people smoke regular cigarettes in a car with the kids in the back seat on a hot day. Do people really not care hurting their kids?

    Apparently it's too difficult to measure emissions from vaped 6 ingredient eliquid.
    All the big boys say is they don't know what is in the ecigs; then they push for ban instead of research.

    Give them a 4000 ingredient nasty stick and they can whip up the ingredient list, no problem.
