Knowledge of relative risk of vaping versus smoking varies among adult smokers.

WARSAW – A growing proportion of U.S. adults do not believe that e-cigarettes are less harmful than smoking, according to an analysis of the U.S. Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health study data from 2013 to 2015 presented at the fifth Global Forum on Nicotine conference.

The analysis of the latest PATH data, a national longitudinal study of tobacco use among youth and adults in the U.S., suggested that the proportion of adult current smokers who believed e-cigarettes were just as, or more, harmful than smoking increased substantially from 43 percent in 2013 to 57 percent in 2015.
