Poll: Americans concerned about e-cig safety, data hacks

A new poll finds that one in four Americans have had personal information accessed by hackers in a way that has harmed them. The poll was conducted by POLITICO and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and POLITICO summarized the results in an August 29, 2019 article.

The survey showed that just a third of Americans had a “great deal” of trust that their personal information would be secured by their doctor’s offices, which was higher than their trust in hospitals and health insurers.

Respondents also voiced concern about the safety of e-cigarettes. Nearly half of Americans think e-cigarettes are “very harmful,” more than twice as many who think the same of marijuana.
