Recently, research was done with regards to in-home air pollution, which included vaping. It was conducted by a team of researchers led by Dr Neil E. Klepeis and yielded interesting results.

The main aim of the study was to determine the harm posed to children by in-home air pollution. The team looked at contaminants like cigarettes, marijuana, vaping; and also frying food and using candles. Each household selected to participate in the study had at least one adult who smoked and a child under the age of 14. Before embarking on the study, interviews were conducted to determine smoking habits and any other mitigating activities.
