Do e-cigarettes expel secondhand smoke?

Not much is known about the secondhand "vapor" that is expelled from users, including levels of nicotine, nitrosamines, and other components that are yet to be identified. Nevertheless, many people would prefer not to be in a restaurant or other place of business and be exposed to vapors that contain addictive nicotine, and possibly other products that have a potential for harm.

Comment from: JC, 45-54 Male (Patient) Published: August 12

Co-workers are allowed to use e-cigarettes in our offices. The exposure is causing sinus problem, hearing problems as a result and burning itching eyes. I have no know allergies or breathing issues. Just walking through the second hand vapor causes my eyes to burn and my sinuses to clog up and it lasts for hours.
