Perception of E-Cigarette Harm and Its Correlation With Use Among U.S. Adolescents.
Nicotine Tob Res (2015) 17 (3): 330-336 doi:10.1093/ntr/ntu156

 U.S. adolescents increasingly use e-cigarettes. The perceived harm of e-cigarettes has not been described, nor has the correlation between harm perception and e-cigarette use been assessed. This study examines correlates of e-cigarette harm perception and use of e-cigarettes in a national survey.
Perception of e-cigarettes as less harmful than conventional cigarettes was associated with increased e-cigarette use, including among cigarette-naive e-cigarette users. These findings should prompt further scientific investigation and merit attention from regulators.
