Despite the toxic ingredients commonly found in e-cigarettes and other vaping products, many adults don’t think secondhand e-cigarette aerosol poses a risk to children, according to a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

About one-third of adults surveyed didn’t know if secondhand aerosol caused harm to children, and 40 percent of the adults said this kind of exposure caused “little” or “some” harm to children.

People who had smoked cigarettes in the past or were current smokers were also more likely to think that secondhand e-cigarette emissions would not cause harm. And men were more likely than women to say that exposure to these emissions did not cause harm to children, according to the survey.
