Second hand nicotine from vapor?
This is a question I have been wondering about since I do vape sometimes in the car with the window rolled down with my son in the car. I was wondering if I am exposing him to nicotine and how much? Anyone know?
I think as vape as similar to a cigarettes if you would not let your son smoke it (at his current age) I would not smoke in confined spaces with him.
From what I've read, the nic in e-vape disperses quicker than in analog smoke. However, erring on the side of caution is always best, especially around kids in such a confined space. Just remember also, now you are not exposing him to the other 3,999 chemicals in analog smoke that can linger on your clothes and in your breath, he was more at risk then than he is now.
According to the information I have read, the water vapor produced by ecigs dissipates in less than 9 seconds, considerably faster than cigarette smoke. Additionally, it does not leave deposits or contaminate everything exposed to it. That said, even second hand smoke has not been definitively proven to be an actual health risk therefore vapor from an ecig should be even less so. Of potentially more concern might be the example set by vaping in front of a child. For that reason alone I would refrain from any exposure to the child if at all possible.
I do smoke in my house with my parents around. but what they told me that it doesn't give any smell or smoke. and I enjoy vape when Im driving while the window was close. hahaha
I recall someone saying they for the last 2 years have vaped near their pet bird and have done tests on the bird to see if nicotine was being transferred to the bird an all tests on the bird came back negative. And they said they vaped literally next to their cage so I'm going to take a guess and say it's not bad as long as you don't blow it in the kids face.
Also read earlier that everyone has some sort of level of nicotine in them naturally being intake from foods ect and our environment that carry it naturally.
Don't know how well you feel about all that jazz but as I stated before I think in a car with the windows down and you aren't blowing it directly in his face, he should be fine.
Second hand vaping - any risk?

"Conclusions: For all byproducts measured, electronic cigarettes produce very small exposures relative to tobacco cigarettes. The study indicates no apparent risk to human health from e-cigarette emissions based on the compounds analyzed."

Regardless of any studies I personally choose not to vape around children.

I had a guy at work freak out because he "thought I was smoking inside" when I explained it to him, he was still concerned about the second hand vapor...I wouldn't vape with children in the room but IMO second hand vapor dissipates far too fast to be hazardous
