Nearly 25% of all U.S. middle and high school students said they recently had been exposed to the vapors from another person’s electronic cigarette. The long-term impact on health of this kind of exposure is not yet known. However, it is known that e-cigarette aerosols may contain, nicotine, heavy metals, formaldehyde, ultrafine particles, and acetaldehyde–each one potentially dangerous to health.
