Of course.... it was only a matter of time before busybodies and whiners grabbed a hold of this one.
OP-- because there is less to be absorbed by the lungs when smoking an e-cig, much more of the stuff that comes out of the "cigarette" is actually
absorbed by the smoker's lungs, instead of released into the environment. As you even admitted in your post, most of what does come back out is
With a real cigarette you get a lot more nicotine, tar, carbon monoxide, etc released back into the environment with the exhale. And that is on top of
what's coming from the cigarette as it just sits there constantly smoldering, releasing lots of smoke directly into the air.
You get no "smoldering" with an e-cigarette, and since 99% of the nicotine is absorbed by the smoker, it is really a faint glycol mist that ends up
in the air. When I use mine indoors, you literally can not see anything most of the time I exhale. No mist, nothing. Every few puffs maybe a little
residue... Some brands of e-cigs / techniques are a little different, and will release more. But properly used, you shouldn't be seeing much of
OP-- you do realize that a person can become light-headed just solely from standing up too fast, or from blood pressure, or from blood
sugar, or from medications, or from a thousand reasons other than almost 0% nicotine and a little propylene glycol in the air, right?
But of course it's more fun to blame people who are trying to quit smoking, and further rob people of their freedoms. Gotta get with the times.
Freedom is like, so
