(HealthDay)—U.S. teens are much less likely to buy cigarettes if they are hidden from view, new research suggests.
Smoking rates have dropped among young Australians in recent years, and research released Tuesday suggests that banning tobacco displays from shops is a factor.
Young people who find tobacco displays in shops attractive and who easily recall seeing the displays have a greater chance of becoming a smoker according to a new Cancer Research UK funded research study published in Nicotine and Tobacco Research today. ...
A ban on tobacco displays in large shops and supermarkets came into force in England on Friday, meaning such stores must hide cigarettes from public view.
Ending the display and promotion of cigarettes and tobacco in retail shops helps prevent young people taking up smoking and keeps quitters on track, according to new University of Otago research.
