A new study has found that vaping in your home has essentially no impact on the average amount of particles in your indoor air. Unlike cigarette smoking, marijuana smoking, cigars, using gas heating or lighting incense, vaping in the home did not appear to affect the particulate matter counts in a selection of low-income homes.

The death of the amendment is bad news for the industry, but there
One of the many ongoing discussions around e-cigarettes is how vaping devices and liquids should be regulated. This varies a lot around the world, from outright bans in some countries through to partial bans (like in Australia, where only nicotine-free e-cigs can be legally sold) and more permissive attitudes.
