For example, one sample contained 1% diethylene glycol, a component of antifreeze. But thus far, no studies have shown that large amounts of dangerous chemicals are released into the air, says Dr. Michael Siegel, a professor at the Boston University School of Public Health. “Unlike tobacco smoke, the vapor dissipates very quickly,” he says.
